Washington's GET College Savings Plan Set to Reopen on November 1st

Washington's Guaranteed Education Tuition (GET) plan will reopen on November 1st after being closed to new investments for nearly two years. The state suspended new unit sales in 2015 in response to the College Affordability Act, which lowered tuition at Washington's public higher education institutions.

The prepaid tuition plan will return to its regular enrollment period schedule, November 1 through May 31, and the unit purchase price, equal to 1/100th of the state's highest priced university, has been set at $113 for 2017-18. Existing accounts have been "rebased" with the addition of new units to ensure these accounts do not lose value.

GET is administered by the Washington Student Achievement Council with oversight from the GET Committee, which meets quarterly to review policies, pricing and investments. The Washington State Investment Board manages the GET fund.
