Helping Families Save on Tuition
[New Logo]Carleton College is proud to be a participant in the Private College 529 Plan, a national prepaid tuition program sponsored by private colleges. Through this plan, families can "lock in" future tuition costs at less than today's prices--saving thousands of dollars on a child's future college education.
Our participation in the Private College 529 Plan reflects Carleton's commitment to helping families afford a quality liberal arts education.
