Future Scholar knows it’s important for you to have fast, secure, and flexible options when making school payments from your 529 savings plan. We want to make you aware of three new online school payment options that may help with your next withdrawal.

  • Direct Electronic Payment: You can now make electronic payments to participating colleges and universities directly from your Future Scholar 529 Plan account.
