  • Florida Prepaid College Program

    If you have the Florida Prepaid tuition plan, the amount it will pay per credit hour will vary based on the type of plan purchased. Since the programs provided by UNFDCE are clock hours, they need to be converted to credit hours to determine the total amount to be paid by Florida Prepaid. To get started, go to the Florida Prepaid website, create a profile, and submit documentation to UNFDCE verifying your account. If your account is not in good standing or you need to complete a survey, Florida Prepaid will not pay. It can be used for a face-to-face or online class format. Visit or contact the Program Director, Jessica Murray, with questions.

  • Information Session Discounts

    For a few selected programs (Project Management and Logistics), information sessions are held to provide individuals the opportunity to ask programmatic questions and meet the instructors. Discounts are available to these attendees.

  • MyCAA

  • Private Loans

    The University does not provide loans for continuing education programs. Loans are available and may be secured independently by students from a number of private institutional lenders. Private lenders determine their interest rates, enrollment status requirements, repayment options, and any fees that may apply.
