529 Plan Can Help You Pay Less for Private Schools

The Private College 529 Plan offers something that no other 529 plan can. You can purchase tuition at today's rates—rather than tomorrow’s—at more than 270 participating private colleges and universities across the country.

Pay less by paying today—Get potentially significant savings by locking in today's tuition rate. Plus, no enrollment charge or annual fee means 100% of your contributions go toward paying for college.

Gain peace of mind—The Plan is structured as a pre-purchase of tuition and not as an investment, leaving no question about what your money will be worth in the future, if used for tuition at a participating school.    

Benefit from 529 plan tax advantages—Includes the same potential federal tax advantages that come with other 529 plans. Subject to certain restrictions.

If you want a private college education for your child, but are concerned about the rising cost of tuition, Private College 529 Plan may be the answer.  For more information visit Private College 529 Plan.
