The new enrollment year runs November 1, 2013 through May 31, 2014. The program can be used at nearly any public or private college, university, or technical school in the country. GET is a 529 plan offering tax-free growth and withdrawals.

 The cost of one GET unit today is $172. The future value of 100 units is equal to one year of resident, undergraduate tuition and required state fees at the highest-priced Washington public university (UW or WSU), no matter how much tuition increases.

GET's Web site at www.get.wa.gov offers details, charts, planning tools and answers for questions families may have about the program.
