Have you heard of the U.Plan? It’s one of the programs in Massachusetts created to help you save for college, but it’s different than most other college savings plans. The U.Plan is a prepaid tuition program, which means by placing money into the U.Plan, you’re paying for college costs up front. The benefit of doing this? You’re locking in today’s college prices (tuition and mandatory fees). So when your son or daughter attends school, you’ll have part of your bill covered and will pay yesterday’s prices with those savings.

To understand the full details of the U.Plan, view our slide presentation below. Navigating the presentation is easy — simply use the left and right arrows at the bottom of the slides to get through the content. If you’d like to see it big screen, use the 2-way diagonal arrows to view the presentation in full-screen mode, then navigate the presentation by using the arrows on your keyboard.

Once you’re ready to save in the U.Plan, simply request an Enrollment Kit online here. You’ll receive one in your email immediately, and can use it to enroll and save in the plan. If you have questions about the U.Plan, call or email us. We’re happy to help. We can be reached at (800) 449-MEFA (6332) and info@mefa.org.
