Who We Are. What We Do. Why It Matters.

Private College 529 Plan is a prepaid tuition plan.  Our college savings option allows families to save on the cost of college by purchasing tomorrow’s tuition at today’s prices. No matter how much tuition increases over the years, or how volatile the financial markets are, families lock in current rates  to be used at any of the nearly 300 leading private colleges and universities nationwide that are part of the Plan (Stanford to Princeton, TCU to Notre Dame, Amherst to Pomona, and hundreds more.)

Unlike other 529 Plans, Private College 529 Plan is not run by a state. Participating colleges and universities own the Plan, and they guarantee the tuition you prepay. Like other 529 Plans, Private College 529 Plan offers the same federal tax benefits as any 529 prepaid tuition plan or state-sponsored 529 college savings plan.

Paying for college is the third largest investment most families make. At the same time, College costs continue to rise.  Like buying a home or saving for retirement, most families pay for college over time.  Private College 529 Plan allows families to lock-in current rates and “get ahead”, helping to protect against future tuition increase while rounding out a well-balanced approach to their college savings portfolio.

What We Offer.

Our primary product is the prepaid college savings plan.

Beyond the plan, and an initiative we are excited to talk about, is our consumer education.  Through blogs, short educational videos, and livestream events, we bring the voice experts (college administrators and financial advisors) to our audience.
