Combs Reminds Families to Enroll in Prepaid College Tuition Program

(AUSTIN) — Just a few days remain for Texas families to enroll their children in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund at 2009-10 prices, Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said today. The current enrollment period for the state’s prepaid college tuition program ends Feb. 28.

“In this challenging economy, the Texas Tuition Promise Fund is an affordable way to save for college,” Combs said. “For as little as $15.45 a month, parents can provide the education their child will need for a good job and a secure future. They can prepay for a four-year degree, a two-year degree or just a few classes or semesters.”

For complete information about the program, including prices, payment options and a college cost calculator, visit www.TuitionPromise.org or call (800) 445-GRAD (4723), Option 5.

After Feb. 28, enrollment will close until September, except for newborns. New contract prices based on 2010-11 academic year costs for Texas public colleges and universities will be in effect when the next enrollment period begins.
