At a time when families across the state are facing rising costs for so many essentials, including food and fuel, a Florida prepaid plan is keeping the price stable.

The Florida Prepaid College Board urges families to secure these risk-free plans, which are also inflation-proof, meaning once a family secures their monthly payment, it will never increase. Plans start at $45 per month and offer flexibility, including nationwide usage.

Open enrollment now extends through April 30 and is the only annual window during which families can lock in future tuition.

Florida Prepaid Plan Information:

• Nearly 28,000 families have purchased prepaid plans so far this year, guaranteeing the future cost of college.

• With a prepaid plan, families are protected against future tuition increases.

• Prices for the prepaid plan start at $45/month for a newborn.
