Pay-As-You-Go is MET's most flexible payment option. With this option you can open your MET by purchasing as little as one credit hour. After the initial purchase, additional payments of a minimum of $25 can be made at any time. This option will allow Purchasers to buy MET by credit hours, rather than semester increments.
This is a good option even if you intend to purchase one or more semesters in a lump sum as it leaves your MET open to future contributions. If you buy as a lump sum purchase, it is closed and cannot be added to in the future. Once you buy one credit in a Pay-As-You-Go MET, friends and family can also make contributions.
Lump Sum purchases are generally used to make a purchase of a set number of semesters or years. If you are not purchasing a full four-year contract, we recommend choosing the Pay-As-You-Go payment option. You would still purchase the same number of semesters or years initially, but your MET would remain open to additional contributions in the future.
MET offers monthly purchase options in four, seven, ten or fifteen year increments depending on the age of the Beneficiary. The age of the Beneficiary determines which plan is available as the contract must be paid-in-full by the time the Beneficiary reaches the age of eighteen. MET's price chart lists the prices for each plan and the ages of eligibility.
Want to give the gift of future education? Our gift declarations allow you to provide a certificate to the beneficiary of your contribution to a MET for birthdays, holidays, graduations and more.
Organizations looking to purchase MET to use as a scholarship or as a gift to the Beneficiary might find our charitable contracts a good fit.
To help families start saving earlier for their child's future education, we have returned 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. View the Price Charts to see what the prices are for the different MET plans based on your Beneficiary's current age.
