The Texas Tuition Promise Fund (TTPF) is administered by the Texas Prepaid Higher Education Tuition Board, with assistance from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. The TTPF plan and the board do not provide legal, financial, or tax advice. TTPF participants should read all plan documents carefully and consult the appropriate advisor prior to purchasing a contract.

Participation in the TTPF does not guarantee admission to or graduation from any college or university. Non-residents of Texas should consider whether their home state, or the beneficiary’s home state, offers residents any tax or other state benefits, such as financial aid, scholarship funds and protection from creditors, that are only available for participants in that state’s plan. Purchasers should carefully consider the risks, fees, charges and expenses associated with contracts, including plan termination and reduced transfer or refund value.
