Congratulations – You’re in!


Did a high school senior you know recently receive college acceptance letters? Congratulations to both you and your student – and best of luck to your student in making the final choice.

Most colleges require that incoming students confirm attendance plans by May 1, but check with your specific institution for details. When you accept a college’s admittance offer, you will likely send in a deposit to secure your spot. If you have a prePAID account with Virginia529, please note that prePAID does not cover admission deposits.

The first time in college is always an exciting time full of new experiences and considerations – and Virginia529 wants to help you ease the transition. Please continue to check What’s New or follow Virginia529 on Facebook or Twitter
