The cost of higher education is high enough!

Because the DC College Savings Plan has low average costs, more of your money can keep growing for college. Depending on the investment option you choose, your annual asset-based fees will range from 0.15% - 0.80%. For example, invest $1,000 and the annual asset-based fee can be as low as $1.50.

Start with a low initial contribution.

Open a DC College Savings Plan account with only $25, then make future contributions of just $25 or more. Even easier:

  • Put your savings on auto pilot with recurring contributions from your bank account.
  • Or, ask your employer if you can contribute through payroll direct deposit.

Enjoy a high contribution maximum.

Contribute up to a total of $500,000 per beneficiary.
