EMU is Charter Member of Tuition-Saving Plan

Making an EMU education acessible to more families is the goal of EMU’s participation in “Independent 529 Plan,” a new prepaid college tuition plan tailored specifically for private colleges.

EMU joins more than 200 other top private colleges and universities across the country to offer an income-tax advantaged way for families to save for tuition.

Section 529 Plans, so named for the IRS code that defines them, have gained in popularity over the last decade. Families have been attracted to these plans because accounts generate no federal income tax if used as intended, benefits are transferable to other members of the family, and refunds are available if the child receives a scholarship or decides not to attend college.
