Valdosta State University will process your Florida Prepaid plan for you, thus making it a third party contract. This allows you to receive Florida Prepaid credit prior to the fee payment deadline, thus reducing your out of pocket cost. Information concerning third party contracts can be found at http://www.valdosta.edu/administration/finance-admin/financial-services/students/services/payments-on-student-accounts-by-third-parties.php.
You must complete the Florida Prepaid Transfer Form which allows VSU to invoice Florida Prepaid on the student’s behalf. The form can be found at http://www.itppv.com/documents/pdf/prepaid/prepaid-transfer-form.pdf.
The amount Florida Prepaid covers depends on the plan a parent/student has.
Restricted Plan- pays a specific dollar amount per credit hour and any balance due is paid by the parent/student if no financial aid award is present.
Unrestricted Plan-covers all tuition and fees up to the total plan value. Any remaining balance due is paid by the parent/student if no financial aid award is present. Keep in mind this option will deplete your Florida Prepaid account at a much faster rate.
