Program set Thursday to explain tuition plan

An informational night to discuss GET, the Guaranteed Education Tuition program, is planned from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday at Sunset View Elementary School, 711 N. Center Parkway, Kennewick.

It is designed to help parents and grandparents understand how GET works and how its value is guaranteed.

The 529 prepaid, tax-free tuition plan is guaranteed by state law to keep pace with rising tuition. GET units can be used at almost any college, university or vocational school in the country.
