College Help
Path2College 529 Plan

Path2College Plan for Tennessee Residents

A competitive and compelling opportunity for Tennessee families to save for their higher education expenses with the Path2College 529 Plan.

"Saving for college is very important. We are pleased to partner with Georgia to promote the Path2College 529 Plan that provides Tennesseans with a low-cost means to save to cover the expense of higher education."

- David Lillard, State of Tennessee Treasurer and Chair of the BEST Board of Trustees

When was the last time you thought, "This investment makes sense?"

That's the idea behind the Path2College 529 Plan. It was designed to give parents, relatives or anyone the ability to save money and give a child a college education - and the possibility of a better life.

You can make regular contributions as large or as small as $25 as often as you can. You can choose from one or a combination of seven investment options that can be matched to meet your savings objectives.

You invest your money, and use your money, federal income tax-free.

That's right, tax-free. Contributions, and any earnings in your Path2College 529 Plan, grow free from federal income taxes.

Then, when you're ready to use your savings for qualified expenses like tuition, fees, books and even certain room and board costs, that money is also federal income tax-free.
