Pay with Florida Prepaid (FPP)
Students can call or visit Bursars office at any campus to request to use their FPP to pay for current term Tuition and eligible fees. MDC does not require students to show their Florida Prepaid card or documentation for verification, it requires only student's MDID. You simply need to verify that your Social Security Number and Date of Birth is correct and matches in both the MDC and Florida Prepaid systems.
Prior to requesting to use Florida Prepaid to pay your MDC tuition and fees, we recommend contacting Florida prepaid to verify the status of your Florida Prepaid plan, ensuring your Social Security Number and Date of Birth is correct and active in their system on the Florida Prepaid Plan website.
Please note, Florida Prepaid contracts do not cover 100% of tuition and fee charges. If there is any difference between the total tuition charges and the amount of credit that FPP plan can cover, the student is responsible for paying the difference.
Upon activation of your Florida Prepaid to pay for current term fees and eligible fees, you will receive temporary credit for the maximum amount that can be billed to your Florida Prepaid plan. If for any reason the College is unable to complete the billing process, the temporary credit will be reversed and the student will be billed in full with an immediate due date.
Reasons why prepaid is not applied:
- The SSN on file at MDC or FL Prepaid may not match
- The FL Prepaid account could be delinquent
- You may have placed a hold on your FL Prepaid account
- The enrollment (or matriculation) year may be incorrect
*Matriculation year is the year of enrollment in college
