Florida Prepaid

The Florida Prepaid Tuition Plan at Hillsborough Community College is administered by the Accounts Receivable Office. Listed below are the processing procedures for participants:

  1. Once you have registered for classes and fees have been assessed, we will automatically defer the maximum amount that can be billed for all participants who are in good standing with Florida Prepaid. You are not required to notify Hillsborough Community College that you want to use your prepaid plan.
  2. Please review your account on Hawknet WebAdvisor to determine that your Florida Prepaid has been applied. Please contact the Accounts Receivable or Bursar Office in the event that your account has not been updated. Your deferral and the Florida Prepaid payment are limited to the amount of credits remaining in your prepaid plan, which is reflected on your annual statement from Florida Prepaid. Please note: HCC must have your Social Security Number (SSN) on record for this service to function. If you have not provided us with your SSN but would like to take advantage of this service, please stop by any campus Admissions office to have your account updated.
  3. At the time we invoice near the end of each semester, your Florida Prepaid account must be in good standing and have sufficient credit hours available. If necessary, please notify Florida Prepaid to release any holds. If for any reason we are unable to complete the billing process, we will reverse the credit and payment for your classes will become due to Hillsborough Community College immediately.

If for any reason you do not want Hillsborough Community College to bill Florida Prepaid on your behalf, please complete and return the Florida Prepaid Program Opt Out form. The deadline for opting out is the last day of the drop/add period for regular 16 week terms, even if your class is not 16 weeks long. See the Academic Calendar for dates.

Important Notes

If you are a beneficiary of a scholarship please complete the survey that is required from Florida Prepaid each year.

Please be aware that there are fees that are not covered by your Florida Prepaid Plan. Check your Hawknet WebAdvisor account to determine these fees and make arrangements to pay for them by the payment deadline. Payments can be made through the web, by mail or in person at the Bursar Office.
