The state's college savings program is accepting new clients until April 30th of next year but prices will go up January 1st. So, anyone looking to buy into the program may want to invest sooner than later. Those who buy before December 31st will spend about 62-thousand dollars to educate a child for four years of college in the future.
The program had been shut down after concerns of oversight and investment strategies. Executive Director Eric Zarnikow says new clients can rest assured that their investment will be safe. Zarnikow says they've also made changes to both the oversight and investment practices, plus they've implemented policies that make the program more transparent.
