This post is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. All thoughts are my own.
I still wake up every morning in complete disbelief that I have a child heading off to college next year and another heading into middle school. Where did my fuzzy-headed little babies go!? With all the talk in my house of college, it is becoming more and more clear that we need to start looking ahead for my little one to make sure she has the opportunity to go to college when the time comes. Since I know this is true for most families, I was excited to be a part of the Believer Blogger Campaign and team up with Florida Prepaid College to tell me readers all about what is available and even 50% off the application fee!! How cool is that?
Deciding which Florida Prepaid College Program is right for you is the first step in getting your child set up for a great college future. They offer a 1-year, 2-year, and 4-year college plan plus a 2+2 – which allows your child to do 2 years at a state college and 2 years at a university – and 4-year University plan. We are going with the 4-year Florida College Plan for Midge – in part because of Pensacola State College being right here in our hometown.
There are 28 colleges across the state of Florida that you can use this program for, many of which even offer four-year bachelor’s degree programs in growth industries like nursing and teaching, and continue to grow their programs year after year. And since State Colleges are typically less expensive than universities, it is the most practical, affordable path to get her going towards her bachelor’s degree.
The most important thing I have learned though is that we need to start NOW. And not wait until we are ordering high school graduation announcements to start thinking about how to pay for college!
