Richardville: Michigan education savings program brochures now available
LANSING - Sen. Randy Richardville announced today that constituents can contact his office to receive information on the Michigan Education Trust (MET) program, which helps state residents purchase a child’s future tuition to any of Michigan’s public universities or community colleges at today’s cost.
“MET allows families to pay for tuition and mandatory fees before a student is old enough to attend college,” said Richardville, R-Monroe. “As a past member of the MET board and father of two recent college graduates, I know all about the dramatic increase in tuition costs over the past few years. With the increases expected to continue, it’s important for parents and others to start saving now to help their children afford college.”
MET was established in 1988 as the nation’s first guaranteed tuition program. Under a MET contract, credit hours can be purchased for up to eight semesters at the current cost of tuition. The 2009 enrollment started in September and runs through August 31, 2009.
“Paying for your child’s education is one of the most stressful aspects of being a parent,” Richardville said. “The MET program is a great way to alleviate some of that stress and ensure a bright future for your child.”
For more information or to receive a copy of the MET brochure and order form by mail, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Sen. Richardville’s office toll free at 866-556-7917. Information is also available online at www.SETwithMET.com.
