Act Now! Tuition Track Portfolio Unit Pricing Changes July 1

Time is running out for Virginia families to purchase Tuition Track Portfolio Units at its 2021-22 pricing. June 30 is the last day to purchase Units before the price increases.

The Tuition Track Portfolio is an exclusive option for Virginia residents designed to track the average tuition growth at Virginia Public 4-year Universities (Average Tuition) and protect families’ savings by avoiding market risk.

Choose how many Units (or fractions of Units) to purchase year-round, and the Units will have the same value no matter where a student goes to school, whether it is a 2-year or 4-year public, or private college or university, in-state or outside of Virginia. For every 100 Units purchased, families will receive the value equal to one year of Average Tuition when their student attends college.

Officially launched in early 2021, the Tuition Track Portfolio has resonated with families looking for a flexible investment option that allows them to take the guesswork out of college savings. This principal protected option allows your investment to grow at the same rate as tuition, regardless of what happens with the broader market.

Visit the Tuition Track Portfolio page to learn more about this newest savings option. Families can use the  Tuition Track Portfolio page  to estimate how many Units to buy based on their budget and savings goals and open an Invest529 account.

Get started by June 30 and purchase your Tuition Track Units before the cost goes up!
