"We understand that while a prepaid plan is a smart investment, it nevertheless represents an important financial decision that takes time. So we wanted to offer families a little extra time to weigh their options, yet still to be able to lock in today’s plan prices," said Kevin Thompson, executive director, Florida Prepaid College Plans.

To apply, visit the Florida Prepaid website.
