Pay for Future Education at Today's Price
INTRODUCING AGE-BASED PRICING
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.
Enrollment is open through September 30, 2022.
MET is a 529 prepaid tuition savings program which allows you to pay for future higher education at today's price. MET is flexible, transferable and even refundable. MET is specific to tuition, it does not pay for room and board or books. Depending on the beneficiary's choices, MET provides:
- Prepaid tuition and mandatory fees at any Michigan public university and community college upon admission.
- Funds from a terminated METs can be directed to a Michigan independent (private), out-of-state college or trade school.
- Refunds can be made if a beneficiary decides not to attend college.
