Tracking Progress

You may select up to five “sample” colleges or universities to help you track your progress. Each quarter you will receive a statement that displays the percentage of tuition your certificates would cover at each sample school. For example, a tuition certificate purchased for $10,000 today may be worth 0.25 years of tuition at one school, but 0.45 years at another.

You may view the amount of tuition you’ve purchased among your “sample” schools or update your list of schools at any time online and as often as you like. To update your list of “sample schools”:

  1. Register online to create a user ID and password
  2. Click on “Sample Schools” in the left hand menu.
  3. Select an account.
  4. Search for new schools by state.

To view the amount of tuition you’ve purchased for each “sample” school:

  1. Log in to your account (Registration required).
  2. Click on “Account Summary” in the left hand menu.
  3. Select an account.
  4. Click on “Tuition Purchased” to view how much tuition you’ve prepaid for each “sample” school or “Certificates Purchased” for tuition certificate information.

Choosing “sample” schools neither locks you into any decision about which school your child will attend nor guarantees admission for your beneficiary.
