The TN Stars 529 College Savings Program


With the TNStars College Savings 529 Program, you can put aside money starting as early as the birth of your child to prepare for their future.  The money invested in your TNStars account can be withdrawn tax-free to pay for qualified education expenses like tuition, housing, books and more at any school that accepts federal financial aid, including trade or technical schools, community colleges, and four-year universities, both in-state and out-of-state. Get your little ones on the right path by opening a TNStars account at in 15 minutes with as little as $25 to start.  If you meet certain income requirements, each of your children in your household may be eligible for up to $1,500 in matching grant funds through the Tennessee Investments Preparing Scholars Program.  Learn more at
