Pay with Prepaid

At FIU, students participating in the Florida Prepaid College Program will not have to show their Florida Prepaid cards to verify that they are participants. You simply need to verify that your Social Security Number is correct in both the FIU and Florida Prepaid systems.

Florida Prepaid will automatically reflect on your account before to the last day to pay as long as you are registered at FIU with your correct Social Security Number.

You should verify the status of your Florida Prepaid plan, ensuring your Social Security Number is correct in their system on the Florida Prepaid Plan website.
