A starting point
One of the questions parents ask most is: How much do I need to save? There’s no one-size-fits-all answer because saving for college is personal. That’s why it’s good to start with your own numbers.
Use our college savings calculator to see how many years of tuition you can expect to save in our prepaid plan at any one of our member colleges. Change the college and your contribution amounts as many times as you’d like to get a clear picture.
Traditional Savings Accounts
They’re a good habit but don’t lead to growth over time or offer tax benefits. Contributions to a Private College 529 Plan account are guaranteed to keep pace with tuition and fees at participating schools (on average 3.46% each year) with the same tax benefits as other 529 plans.*
No need to select investment options or worry about the uncertainty of tomorrow’s financial markets. With Private College 529 Plan, you lock in current rates that can be used at any member colleges and universities — no matter how much tuition increases over the years.
Financing college costs with loans may be an option. However, loans are not guaranteed and, with fees and interest, can be costly. Saving now with Private College 529 Plan could mean less borrowing in the future.
