Disclaimer: As an Florida college graduate, an educator and a mom, I view a higher education as a precious commodity. Through my partnership with the Florida Prepaid College Foundation and its Believer Blogger Ambassador Program, I can share my my honest opinions about FPCB and the value my husband and I place on higher education with you, my readers.
The 2017 -2018 school year is rolling right along. Personally, I can’t believe we’re over halfway through October already and finished the first nine years of the school year!
As each school day slips by, we move closer to the end of the school year and closer to my oldest daughter’s graduation day – Class of 2020. Two years may seem like a long way off, but in these hustle bustle over scheduled, fast-paced school days, my high school daughter’s graduation feels like only a few sleeps away.
And two years from now, the cost of college will be higher than today’s cost. That’s why it’s pertinent to take advantage of Florida PrePaid Open Enrollment opportunity NOW- to be locked into today’s college pricing. In fact, this year’s pricing is remaining low and even more reason start saving now!
As any fiscal-minded parent will tell you, saving early for college pays off in the long run. The earlier a family starts saving, the more opportunity there is to spread the payments, lowering the monthly contribution necessary to reach college savings goals.
Plus, starting your Prepaid Plan early in the Open Enrollment window could really pay off! Florida Prepaid will select one winner from all the Plans purchased between Oct. 15, 2017 – Nov. 30, 2017 and pay that Florida Prepaid Plan off in FULL!
Now, you may be wondering, “Why even bother? Am I really saving?” “What if my child chooses to attend school out of state or not pursue a college education at all?”
Florida PrePaid takes the wondering and worry out of college savings, whether you child chooses to attend college in Florida, out of state or not at all. Each Florida Prepaid Plan can be applied to other schools nationwide or transferred to another child in the family.
