Saving for college through tuition plan

State Treasurer Kate Marshall

Their dream, your promise, our plan. That’s the motto of the Nevada Prepaid Tuition Program. Finding the money to send your child to college can be a monumental task, one that can sometimes seem overwhelming for a parent, especially in the economic times we face today.

As state treasurer and the administrator of the Nevada Prepaid Tuition Program, I’d like to encourage you to begin saving for college, one step at a time. Providing for a child’s higher education needs is one of the greatest and most long-lasting gifts we can provide our children. A college education is a gift that will last a lifetime, and will most certainly pave the way to a more successful future.

The cost of attending college continues to escalate, and that’s where the Nevada Prepaid Tuition Program can help you make a profound difference in your child’s life. The Program provides many benefits and affordable plan options, including flexible payment plans that start at as little as $36 per month. The goal of the Nevada Prepaid Tuition Program is to assist parents, grandparents, and other family members in delivering the promise of a college education for their child.

The 2012 open enrollment period for the Nevada Prepaid Tuition Program concludes on Feb. 28, 2012. I invite you to review the information and consider joining the more than 14,120 Nevada parents and other caregivers who have enrolled their children in the Program. The Nevada 529 College Savings Plans Program, including the Nevada Prepaid Tuition Program, provides an excellent opportunity to help your child meet his or her goal of attaining a college education.
