A College Savings Plan That's Worth a Little Extra

The importance of a college education is ever increasing, and unfortunately, so are the costs. Recent estimates indicate that in 18 short years, a four-year undergraduate degree from a public university in Louisiana could cost as much as $156,000. Parents and students can no longer rely solely on grants, scholarships, and loans to pay for postsecondary education. A plan is needed, and that is what the Louisiana START Savings Program is about. Benefits of the START Program include: 

  • Several different investment options ranging from conservative fixed income accounts to more aggressive equity investments
  • Earning Enhancements provided by the State of Louisiana
  • State and Federal Tax Credits
  • Easy management of the fund(s)
  • Much, much more

START Saving for college now and benefit later.
