A Local Fee Plan may be added to a Tuition Plan purchased prior to August 30, 2010. The Local Fee Plan covers the required activity and service, health and athletic fees charged by Florida’s state universities and/or the required student activity and service and technology fees charged by Florida Colleges. Local Fee Plans purchased after July 1, 1999 also cover the technology fee imposed by the universities and community colleges.

A Tuition Differential Fee Plan may be added to a Tuition Plan purchased between October 1, 2007 and August 30, 2010. The Tuition Differential Fee Plan covers the tuition differential fee charged by a public university in Florida pursuant to Section 1009.24(16), Florida Statutes. All state universities in Florida charge this fee.

A Dormitory Plan prepays the payment for a standard, double-occupancy, air-conditioned dormitory room at a Florida state university. The Dormitory Plan may be purchased in one-year increments for up to two years (with a 2 + 2 Florida Plan or a 2 + 2 Tuition Plan) and up to four years (with a 4-Year Florida University Plan or a 4-Yr FL University Tuition Plan) and is offered only for a child in the eleventh grade or below. You may purchase a Dormitory Plan along with a corresponding Prepaid Plan or supplement an existing Prepaid Plan at a later date.

The state universities determine which dorms are designated for Florida Prepaid College Plan students. Not all dorms are offered. Rooms are assigned first come, first served, so there is no guarantee that the student will receive a room assignment. If a student applies for housing at a state university but does not receive a room assignment, the account owner may request a refund equal to the average dormitory rate for a standard, double-occupancy, air-conditioned dormitory room at the state university the student is attending. The Dormitory Plan cannot be used in summer terms.
