Two ways to save

The PA 529 College Savings Program includes two different savings plans. Choose the one that's right for you.

Guaranteed Savings Plan

A lower-risk plan designed to help your savings keep pace with rising tuition.


Investment Plan

Choose from 15 different investment options from The Vanguard Group.

The Pennsylvania 529 College Savings Program sponsors two plans - the PA 529 Guaranteed Savings Plan (GSP) and the PA 529 Investment Plan (IP). The guarantee of the PA 529 GSP is an obligation of the GSP Fund, not the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or any state agency. Before investing in either plan, please carefully read that plan's disclosure statement to learn more about that plan including investment objectives, risks, fees, and tax implications.

If you are not a Pennsylvania taxpayer, consider before investing whether your or the designated beneficiary's home state offers any state tax or other benefits that are only available for investments in that state's qualified tuition program.
