Florida Prepaid

Students with a valid Florida Prepaid College Plan are automatically billed for the number of credit hours enrolled each term.  Prior to the drop/add deadline you must verify your social security number matches in both the FAU and Florida Prepaid portal. Auto-billing will occur each term after the last day to pay deadline (Florida prepaid students will be deferred). Students are notified through their FAU email when the billing is completed and again when FAU has posted the payment. Any balance not covered by prepaid or financial aid is due by the deferred deadline. Please click here to visit the Important Dates Calendar. 

* Florida Prepaid plans purchased prior to 7/1/07 or recipients of a STARS or Take Stock in Children Scholarships will have the Tuition Differential Fee covered as long as the account is being actively billed by FAU and credits are available.
