Plan and Alumni Match Overview

To mark our 20th anniversary this year, we’re offering a special incentive to your alumni. They can get up to $1,000 when they enroll and save with auto-contributions. This incentive is a great way to help your alumni start saving.

We’re asking colleges to promote our 20th Anniversary Alumni Match through your alumni office. We have a dedicated webpage with eligibility requirements and a toolkit below to help you spread the word.

Alumni talking points

Why save in the plan

    • Private College 529 is a prepaid tuition plan that’s been around for 20 years, and we’re a participating school.
    • By buying prepaid tuition, you’re locking in current tuition rates.
    • When your child is ready to enroll here (or any college in the plan), no matter how much tuition increases, we guarantee the rate you locked in.
    • The plan protects families from tuition increases and market volatility. Account owners pay no fees, so 100% of contributions go toward the purchase of tuition.

Why save now

    • As an alum of our school, Private College 529 Plan is offering a special match to help you start saving for college.
    • You can get up to $1,000 towards college savings by enrolling in the plan and saving with auto-contributions.
    • Aside from being an alum, you and your child (5 years or younger) need to be new to the plan.
    • This match is limited to the first 300 new accounts. You should enroll soon at
