College savings plan starts open enrollment
Guaranteed Education Tuition, Washington state’s college savings program, is now open for enrollment. It is a tax-free program, including withdrawal, when used for tuition, housing and other qualified college expenses.
If a student ends up getting a scholarship to cover college expenses or decides not to go right after high school, the account owner can wait up to 10 years, transfer the funds to another family member or request a refund.
One hundred GET units are equal to one year of resident undergraduate tuition and state-mandated fees at the University of Washington or Washington State University, the state’s two most expensive public universities. Less expensive colleges require fewer units. More expensive private or out-of-state colleges require more units so families pay the difference.
