The Directory of Financial Professionals (the “Directory”) is an online directory of professional consultants with knowledge on college planning and qualified state tuition programs.

In order to be included in the Directory, you must (i) personally be in the business of providing investment, legal, or tax services or products to individual clients; (ii) pay an annual listing fee to Savingforcollege.com; (iii) pass an examination regarding 529 Plans and related topics, administered by Savingforcollege.com; and (iv) agree to this Agreement by submission of your registration and your completed exam to Savingforcollege.com. You may not have a listing that covers more than one consultant in your company; however, different consultants in your company may each apply for their own listing. You are responsible for ensuring that the information that appears in the Directory meets any requirements and standards under your professional or securities license. Savingforcollege.com assumes you have cleared your listing through all necessary channels before submission of registration.
Your listing in the Directory does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation of your products and/or services by Savingforcollege.com. You may not make any statements or produce any materials that in any way suggest that you are recommended by, or affiliated with, Savingforcollege.com.

Professionals listed on the Directory have the option to take an electronic exam administered by Savingforcollege.com, consisting of 25 questions covering Section 529 and related college planning topics. The Savingforcollege.com website, specifically the premium content, is to be used as reference for the exam. Savingforcollege.com, will activate the 529 Pro Directory exam link in the “Manage Account” area of the website. After completing the electronic exam you will be sent results via email, and if passed, a 529 Pro badge will be displayed on your listing. This designation is intended to provide an indication to potential clients that you have general knowledge in the area of qualified state tuition programs and related college planning topics. If you do not pass the exam, you have the opportunity to retake it.
A “Gold” listing contains your name, credentials, company, title, disclaimer (if required by your compliance department), state(s) that you are registered and/ or licensed in, address, telephone number, fax, a link to your personal or company web site, and e-mail address and e-mail address.
