OLYMPIA — The enrollment period for Washington’s prepaid tuition program closes next week. And when enrollment reopens again in the fall, fees are expected to be about 14 percent higher. That’s how the Guaranteed Education Tuition or GET program keeps in step with rising tuition at Washington’s four-year colleges.
Washington families have opened more than 113,000 GET accounts worth over $1.2 billion to send their children to college.
Parents buying GET units until March 31, will pay $101 a unit or about $10,000 for a year for tuition at the state’s most expensive public colleges.
sponsored According to two 2015 surveys, 62 percent of Americans do not have enough savings to handle an unexpected emergency, much less any long-term plans.
