Local Fees cover the costs associated with on-campus services such as health facilities
or athletic events. Local fees are mandatory for every student, even if the student
does not attend a game or visit the school clinic. By adding the Local Fee Plan,
you have the peace of mind knowing these expenses have already been addressed when
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 (formerly known as community
colleges). The Local Fee Plans do not include payment of the tuition differential
fee or other institutionally-imposed fees.
Living in a college dormitory can be a major expense. But it can also be a major
advantage for students as they’re close to their peers, study groups, classes and
other sources of learning enhancement.
The Dormitory Plan addresses these costs by covering 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 Tuition Plan) and up to four years (with a 4-Yr University Tuition Plan)
and is offered only for a child in the eleventh grade or below.
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.
Beneficiaries for whom Prepaid Plan contracts were in effect prior to July 1, 2007
and include the 4-Yr University Tuition Plan or the 2 + 2 Tuition Plan, are exempt
from the tuition differential fee. The Tuition Differential Fee Plans do not include
payment of local fees or other institutionally-imposed fees.
