Where to mention us
Do you have a financial tools & resources page? This is where many of your colleagues are highlighting the plan. We also show up under early college planning and student payment options.
Be careful about lumping us with other savings plans like state 529s. Your membership is important and shows a special level of commitment. Not every college can guarantee prepaid tuition – but you can.
