Florida Parents Can Lock in College Tuition Starting October 19th

Starting Monday, October 19th and running through January 31, 2010, parents have the opportunity to lock in the 2009-2010 tuition rates for Florida state universities by enrolling their children in the state-sponsored Florida Prepaid Plan. Under the plan, any child may be enrolled, from birth until they reach their junior year of high school. Parents, guardians or other relatives can pre-pay the tuition all at once or make monthly payments. If the child opts to attend a private or out-of-state school, the money can be refunded or transferred to the chosen school.

In a divorce, the courts do not require either parent to pay for college or to have a child support obligation after high school. But it frequently comes up in the dissolution and settlement process. Locking in tuition rates under the Florida Prepaid Plan is a great idea for any parent, even if they are in the middle of a divorce.
