529 Plans

529 Plans

A 529 Plan is a college savings account that is tax exempt and you can contribute as you wish.  Earnings grow tax free and is spent tax free for eligible college expenses such as tuition, books and fees. Please note: Georgia Institute of Technology does not bill any state agencies for 529 tuition plans directly. It is the responsibility of the student to provide the required information to the state agency to request a disbursement if required by the plan. 

Tuition invoices are available to all students on BuzzPort by clicking on the Registration - OSCAR link. Next, click on Student Services & Financial Aid. Then, click on Registration. Next, click on Student Invoice Statement And Web Payment Options.

Although a student may have expected 529 funds to cover tuition and fees, the balance of the student account is due on the fee payment deadline. If a 529 payment is received after the fee payment deadline and generates a credit balance on the student’s account, a refund will be issued to the student. Please click here to sign-up for Direct Deposit to ensure your refund is received in a timely manner.

Due to the large number of 529 plans and frequent changes, Georgia Tech is unable to provide individual plan information.  Please contact your plan provider to determine their requirements for individual billing information and any payment restrictions.
