Summer will be here before we know it! With the nice weather comes the option for summer sessions at colleges and universities.
Taking courses over the summer can make a big difference. Classes are smaller and can be more relaxed, which make this a great option for those looking to get ahead in their academic career. However, summer semesters often provide less “bang for your buck,” with fewer available classes and a more compressed schedule.
Before using Prepaid529 to fund a summer session, consider the difference in credits earned versus a traditional fall or spring semester. If it will pay off, that’s great! If not, you may instead consider paying out of pocket or using funds from a 529 savings account such as Invest529.
