You don't want to miss out on the reduced application fee for the Florida Prepaid College Savings Plan!! Depending on how many children you have, this can be a very significant savings. I have three kids. But you already know that. And you already know that I have Florida Prepaid accounts for all 3. You also know that my husband and I have worked very hard to pay those accounts off in full.
But what would happen if our family decided to move out of state (say to North Carolina) but the kids decided that they wanted to come back to attend college in Florida? Would we lose all that money? The answer is NO. But not only that, the kids (or their parents, cough cough) would be billed at in-state tuition rates when using their plan at a Florida college or state university. That's pretty huge in my mind. With so much that Florida has to offer, it wouldn't surprise me if the kids wanted to come back here to go to college (of course, that's provided we ever move out of state, which who knows?!?!)
But it does give me a great deal of comfort knowing that the kids can always come back to Florida and receive Florida tuition rates, which is a HUGE savings. Plus you can save MORE when you enroll your kids by FEBRUARY 28.

Halloween is quickly approaching! The fall weather is beginning to show itself and the first quarter of the school year is nearly over! I don't know about you guys, but this year is just flying by. With the #TampaTrio now in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades, I am beginning to see what life with "older" kids is going to be like. My 6th grader is now more than 1/2 way finished with her adolescent schooling. College isn't looming too far off. It doesn't seem that long ago that she was born and her dad and I signed her up for her Florida Prepaid College Plan.
We have no idea what career path Haley will choose, but we wanted to make sure she had the funds available to go to college which is why we signed her up for her prepaid plan in February 2004, just a few short weeks after she was born.
