Nevada’s Prepaid Tuition program is open for enrollment and accepting applications for multiple plans, according to the Nevada State Treasurer’s office.

The Prepaid tuition program allows individuals to begin investing in their child’s future with monthly installments for community college or university tuition. Benefits from the in-state program can be used for any eligible public or private college, universities or trade schools under federal student aid.

"The Nevada Prepaid Tuition program has already helped so many Nevada families," said Dan Schwartz, Nevada State Treasurer. "College tuition continues to rise. Don't miss this chance to start saving for your child's future!"

Newborns through 9th graders can participate in the prepaid tuition program and may win a years’ worth of tuition if enrolled by Jan. 31, 2017.

The Prepaid Tuition program’s monthly payments start at $38 and partners with other 529 college saving plans that may cover additional student costs such as housing, books and fees.
