AUSTIN — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs is reminding parents they can begin enrolling in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund, the state’s prepaid college tuition program. Open enrollment began this month and runs through Feb. 28.

“Saving for college is a very important part of family budgets,” Combs said in a statement. “The Texas Tuition Promise Fund offers parents the chance to prepay for their child’s education at Texas public colleges and universities at today’s prices. The fund has flexible options that families can utilize to fit their budgets.”

For more information about enrolling in the prepaid college tuition program, including a college cost calculator, go to or call 1-800-445-4723, Option 5.
