Using Florida Prepaid at USF
How Florida Prepaid Works
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BRING, FAX OR MAIL YOUR CARD TO THE STUDENT ACCOUNTING OFFICE TO ACTIVATE YOUR ACCOUNT.
Please make sure your social security number on file at USF and Florida Prepaid is correct. This is required for matching you to your Florida Prepaid account. If incorrect or missing your Florida Prepaid will not be billed.
We will automatically bill for Florida Prepaid tuition and dormitory plans. Please review the Florida Prepaid FAQ PDF document for more details about the processing of both tuition and dormitory prepaid payments.
Activating Your Florida Prepaid
The University of South Florida downloads a file from Florida Prepaid and we automatically bill for all Florida Prepaid College students with tuition plans that are enrolled for Fall, Spring and/or Summer terms. Dorm plans are billed for students with dorm charges for Fall and Spring terms only. Payment is limited to the maximum amount allowed of your available prepaid plan balance.
Inactivating Your Florida Prepaid
If you do not want the University to bill Florida Prepaid for tuition and/or dorm you must notify the Student Accounting Office. Please fill out and submit the Request Not to Bill/Resume Billing form prior to the first week of classes to have your account inactivated. You will need to submit a new form at the beginning of each semester you do not want prepaid to be billed. Do Not Bill Form
Out-of-State Prepaid Students
Florida Prepaid is only billed for in state tuition. If you have Florida Prepaid and have been classified as a non-resident you need to bring your Florida Prepaid card to one of the following areas to be reclassified as an in state student:
Prepaid Dormitory Plan
Automatic billing will occur if the student has available prepaid dorm semesters and has dorm charges on their USF student account for Fall or Spring terms for USF on-campus housing only. PREPAID DOES NOT ALLOW BILLING OF HOUSING FOR SUMMER TERMS. We do not bill for USF affiliated (off-campus) housing. Please contact Residence Services at (813) 974-0001 if you have any questions about your dorm charges and amounts that Florida Prepaid covers.
