Comptroller’s Office to Host Texas Tuition Promise Fund
Information Meeting

A representative from the Texas Comptroller’s office will host two informational meetings about the Texas Tuition Promise Fund, the state’s prepaid college tuition plan.

The meetings will take place Jan. 14 at the Hays County Commissioners Courtroom, located on the third floor of the courthouse at 111 E. San Antonio St. in San Marcos. The meetings will take place at 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Anyone interested in finding out more about the Texas Tuition Promise Fund is invited to attend.

Opened by the Comptroller in September 2008, the Texas Tuition Promise Fund allows families to lock in pre-pay tuition and required fees at current prices of public colleges in Texas. The program helps Texas families save money for their children’s college education without worrying about rising tuition costs and offers many flexible options to prepay those expenses before a child is ready for college.

The Texas Tuition Promise Fund offers three levels of pricing to prepay undergraduate tuition at schools ranging from public community colleges to four-year state universities. Families have several payment options, including lump sum or installments with an annual interest.
