Student Financial Services Office Policies: Florida Prepaid College Program

The University of North Florida will automatically post a deferment on the student's account for the lesser of: the number of registered hours or number of remaining Florida Prepaid hours. The deferment will show on myWings as pending financial aid under 'View and Pay My Bill.'  Any student that is using Florida Prepaid to pay their tuition and fees is required to pay the balance that Florida Prepaid does not cover by the payment deadline, unless the student has other aid/awards to cover the balance due.

 

Please note if you make changes in your registration, the amount that Florida Prepaid will cover will not immediately adjust; this requires an overnight process.

 

If you have the Florida Prepaid tuition plan, it will pay $117.08 per credit hour for the 2013-2014 academic year. You can multiply this amount by the number of hours registered for to determine the total amount to be paid by Florida Prepaid. You will be responsible to pay the local fees ($42.46 per hour), the transportation fee ($4.08 per hour),  the technology fee ($5.25 per hour) and the student life and services fee ($5.25 per hour) by the tuition deadline to avoid any late payment fee (unless you have other awards to pay the local fees).

 

Some contracts cover local fees as well and this will be stated on the prepaid card. The local fees include athletic fee, activity fees, student health fees, counseling fee, wellness center fee and student union fee. Your assessment for local fees is $42.46 per credit hour for fall 2013 - summer 2014. If you have the tuition plus local fee plan, Florida Prepaid will pay $156.77 per credit hour. Florida Prepaid does not cover any lab fees, late fees, ID card fee, orientation, transportation access fee ($4.08 per hour), technology fee ($5.25 per hour), the student life and services fee ($5.25 per hour) etc.

 

Local fees, if owed, will be deducted from any financial aid money if the fees have not already been paid. These fees are subject to change.

If you have the 2 + 2 plan, the University of North Florida will bill Florida Prepaid at the university level and you will run out of hours faster.

 

If you wish the University of North Florida to not bill Florida Prepaid for a particular semester, please go to myWings, click on the Student Self Service link, then the Online Forms link and complete the Florida Prepaid Opt Out form.  Your Florida Prepaid deferment will be removed in an overnight process from our system and we will not bill Florida Prepaid for that term only.

 

If you wish the University of North Florida to bill for hours less than the number for which you are registered, you need to complete the form via the link below and return it to the Student Financial Services Office no later than the end of the first week of classes.
