Today is the last day to enroll in the Florida Prepaid College Plan at 2007-08 prices.

Families can purchase plans for tuition, local fees and dormitory housing, plus a new tuition differential fee plan. The plans are useable at 11 state public universities and 28 community colleges and are transferable to most accredited private and out-of-state colleges.

The price depends on the child's age or grade level. The cost of a four-year university tuition plan for a newborn is about $3 a day or $93.12 a month.

Enrollment forms are available online at www.florida529plans.com. Mailed forms must be postmarked today.

For details, contact Diane Hirth, Florida Prepaid College Board, at (850) 488-8514 or e-mail diane.murdock@myfloridaprepaid.com.
