Enroll for a NC-529 college savings plan

Your child’s future can’t wait

Set up an NC 529® Plan account in less time than it takes to brew a pot of coffee.

Enroll online or complete and mail a paper form. There are no fees or sales charges to open an account and the minimum contribution is only $25.

You get to choose your investments. Choose one or more from the age-based and individual options that cover a range of financial strategies, from conservative to aggressive. Account earnings grow free from federal or state taxes when used for qualified higher education expenses, such as tuition, room and board, books, fees, computer, and other required equipment. And your NC 529 savings can be used at virtually any college, anywhere in the country.
