Newborn Enrollment

How it worksIt's never to early to start saving for college. Newborn enrollment is open year-round.

  • You may enroll a child from birth to his or her 1st birthday any time of year (no enrollment period limitations).
  • If your child is older, you may still enroll during an open enrollment period (November 1 - May 31 annually).
  • All payments received after June 25, 2020, will purchase units at the new 2021 Unit Purchase Price in Fall 2020.

Why it helps to start saving early

  • College tuition is a major expense that continues to grow. Any amount you can save today will reduce the stress of covering future college costs.
  • It’s not just the amount you’re saving today, it’s what your GET account will be worth in the future. The sooner you start, the more opportunity for growth in your account.
  • Children who know there’s a college savings account in their name are seven times more likely to graduate and go on to higher education.
  • When you start early, you have even more time to enjoy of the benefits of saving with GET.

How to enroll when the regular enrollment period is closed (June 1 - October 31)

  • Complete a special paper enrollment form for newborns, found on our forms page.
  • Form must be printed, signed and mailed with a copy of the child’s official birth certificate attached. Enrollment forms received without a birth certificate copy will not be processed, and may be returned.
  • Payment for the enrollment fee and your initial deposit must also be enclosed with your paper enrollment form.

How to enroll during the regular enrollment period (November 1 - May 31)
