AUSTIN — Parents looking to make their child’s college education more affordable can enroll in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund, the state’s prepaid college tuition program through Feb. 28.
“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 in a statement. “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.
