    Introducing Age-Based Pricing

    Open a new MET in December and get a $150 match!

    You've been thinking about it, and now is the time to do it. The Michigan Education Trust (MET) is here to help make saving for college easier. Avoid rising tuition rates and save on college tuition by buying college credits at today's price with a MET 529 prepaid tuition savings program. To help families start saving earlier for their child's future education, we are returning to a discounted, age-based pricing structure for the first time in more than a decade. Switching to a discounted, age-based pricing structure--as opposed to charging one price across all ages--means families will realize significant savings the earlier they start saving with MET.

    In addition to the new pricing structure, MET is waiving its $25 online enrollment fee and offering a $150 match for new Beneficiaries when you use coupon code HOLIDAY21 during the month of December when you enroll online*.

    Enrollment is open through September 30, 2022.
