El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs reminds Texas families to enroll their children in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund.
The current enrollment period for the state’s prepaid college tuition program ends Feb. 28.
The Texas Tuition Promise Fund allows participants to lock in the cost of undergraduate tuition and required fees at Texas public colleges and universities based on current prices.
Under the plan, families can prepay tuition and required fees for a four-year degree, two years of community college or just a few semesters at Texas public colleges and universities by purchasing tuition units.
Enrollment in the program at 2013-14 prices will close Feb. 28.
This deadline extends to July 31 for children younger than 1.
The next annual enrollment period begins Sept. 1, with new contract prices based on Texas public college costs for the 2014-15 academic year.
Complete plan information, current prices, enrollment forms and more are available online at www.TuitionPromise.org , or call 1-800-445-GRAD (4723), Option 5.
