Parents looking to make their child’s college education more affordable can begin enrolling in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund®, the state’s prepaid college tuition program, on Sept. 1. The enrollment period runs through Feb. 28, 2013.“This program is a great way to prepay all or part of a child’s undergraduate tuition and fees at Texas public colleges and universities at today’s prices,” said Texas Comptroller Susan Combs. “And we offer flexible payment options to help fit any family’s budget as they save for college.”

Families in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund purchase prepaid “tuition units” that can later be used toward undergraduate tuition and required fees at schools ranging from Texas public community colleges to four-year, in-state universities.  Prices are based on 2012-13 academic year costs for the state’s public colleges. The Texas Tuition Promise Fund is entering its fifth year.  For more information about enrolling in the prepaid college tuition program, including a college cost calculator, go to or call (800) 445-GRAD (4723), Option 5.
