Students must submit a transfer authorization request to Florida Prepaid before the benefits will be paid to The University of Tampa. Transfer authorizations may be submitted online by the account owner or the beneficiary. Please log into your account at myfloridaprepaid.com, and complete the form.
It is important to note that the transfer form will require you to select how Florida Prepaid will make payments to The University of Tampa, either restricted or unrestricted. Since private schools have different tuition rates than state public schools, Florida Prepaid can either pay the equivalent of the state public school rate or pay the actual invoiced amount, up to the entire value of the plan. An unrestricted payment plan option can deplete your plan at a much faster rate than a restricted payment option.
For the restricted payment option, The University of Tampa will bill for 15 credit hours for the fall/spring semesters, unless the account holder or beneficiary notifies us otherwise. Should the student wish to utilize Florida Prepaid for the summer term, please email the Bursar's Office.
For the unrestricted payment option, the account holder or beneficiary should email the Bursar's Office to inform our office each semester for billing. If no communication is received, the Bursar's Office will bill for 15 credit hours.
