College Savings 529 Plans & Prepaid Tuition 529 Plans

Money from a College Savings/Prepaid Tuition 529 plan can be used for tuition, fees, supplies, and equipment required for study at any accredited college, university or vocational school in the United States and at some foreign universities.

Participation in a College Savings 529/Prepaid Tuition 529 plan does not exempt a student from the established Wake Forest University tuition due dates; payments should be remitted to the student account per the payment schedule for the applicable semester.

If your Plan provides Student Financial Services with documentation of forthcoming payment, including exact payment amount and remittance date, a memo (credit serving as placeholder for expected funds) will be put on the student’s account until the check arrives from the specified College Savings/Prepaid Tuition 529 Plan.
