Prepaid College in Texas

ACCE Webmaster on Tuesday, September 16, 2008 at 10:41:05 pm

Last week Texas unveiled a new plan to help parents parents pay for their children's college education.  The Texas Tuition Promise Fund allows families to lock-in current tuition and fee rates at state universities and community colleges for future attendance. 

The new plan replaces the similar Texas Tomorrow Fund which ceased offering prepaid college tuition contracts to Texans in 2003.  That program has left the state with huge deficits because state university tuition in Texas has increased over 40% since deregulation in 2003.

A  year at the University of Texas - Austin currently costs $9,850 for in-state students.  When it launched in 1996, the Texas Tomorrow Fund was selling 4 years at UT-Austin for $8,800.
