Savings plan estimator
See how your savings could add up. This tool can give you an idea of the portion of college costs your contributions could cover based on your child's age and how much you plan to save. Then, try different scenarios by clearing your information and starting again.
Remember, you can get started with as little as $25, and you don't have to cover 100% of the costs yourself. Use our gifting feature to request and receive contributions from loved ones. Every bit makes a difference!
