Texas prepaid tuition deadline approaching

Last Updated by Norma Gonzalez on

Texas Families can get a step ahead on college costs locking undergraduate tuition rates at Texas public colleges and universities. To do so, families must enroll their children in the tax-advantaged Texas Tuition Promise Fund.

The deadline for 2016-17 prices is Feb. 28. The deadline extends to July 31 for children younger than 1

The state’s prepaid college tuition program permits participants to buy tuition units, allowing them to prepay undergraduate tuition and fees. Families can decide whether to use the fund to pay for a four-year degree, two years at a community college, or a few semesters at Texas public colleges and universities.

“I’m encouraging Texas families and individuals to remember the upcoming deadline to prepay and lock in today’s rates,” Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar said.
