Enrollment open for Guaranteed Education Tuition (GET)

OLYMPIA — The Washington Student Achievement Council has announced that the 2021-2022 Guaranteed Education Tuition (GET) enrollment is open through May 31.

This year, the unit price is $114.01; 100 units will cover the cost of one full year of resident undergraduate tuition and state-mandated fees at the state’s highest-priced public university.

GET units have the same monetary value when used for a public university, a local community college or technical school, a private university or a college in another state.

Unlike some 529 plans, GET units are not subject to variations in the stock market and are guaranteed by RCW 28B.95.050.

The council also manages the state’s DreamAhead College Investment Plan. For more information on both plans, visit wastate529.wa.gov.
