Who We Are
A Plan Sponsored by Schools
Partnering with families to keep tuition within reach.
Tuition Plan Consortium, LLC (TPC) is a not-for-profit organization of private colleges and universities. TPC was formed in 1998 to establish a prepaid tuition 529 option designed specifically for private colleges and universities. Today, more than 270 private colleges across the country voluntarily participate in Private College 529 Plan (the Plan), which is structured as a pre-purchase of tuition. Key features:
There is no investment risk. Schools take the risk so families can save on the cost of college.
There are no origination fees, no annual fees. All fees are paid from the plan’s trust.100% of the contributions made by a family go toward the purchase of tuition.
Participation in the Consortium and Private College 529 Plan is completely voluntary by colleges. TPC is proud to offer this option for families to help make the dream of a private college education for their students a reality.
Variety of participating schools – arguably, there is school for every student: Liberal Arts, Faith Based, urban – rural, Science and Engineering, large research, Historically Black.
