Enrollment ends May 31 for Washington's prepaid college savings plan

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
The GET program’s 2018-2019 enrollment period comes to a close on May 31. Washington families still have time to start saving for future college costs with the state’s 529 prepaid tuition program.
 
The Guaranteed Education Tuition (GET) program opened in 1998, and since then, thousands of Washington families have saved billions of dollars to go towards their students’ future higher education expenses. To date, GET has distributed over $1 billion to more than 50,000 students who have used their GET accounts to attend college in all 50 states and 15 foreign countries.
 
As a 529 prepaid tuition program, the State of Washington guarantees that a family’s GET savings will keep pace with in-state tuition and state-mandated fees. While GET account values keep pace with in-state tuition, beneficiaries have the freedom to follow their ambitions wherever they choose, as GET can be used at nearly any public or private university, community college, or technical school in the country.
GET’s website (get.wa.gov) offers details, charts, planning tools and answers to questions that families may have about the program. Accounts can be opened online, and the GET Contact Center staff is ready to help at (800) 955-2318 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
