Use GET Nationwide

Your child can use GET units at nearly any public or private college, university or technical school in the country.  The unit value is the same, whether your child attends an in-state public college or an out-of-state private university.  The value of GET units is based on resident, undergraduate tuition costs and state-mandated fees at Washington’s highest priced public university, either UW or WSU, but you can use your GET account practically anywhere.

Regional or community colleges usually cost less, and you can use extra GET units for room and board, books, or other qualified higher education expenses.  If your child attends a private or out-of-state university, tuition there will likely cost more and you’ll pay the difference.  In any case, GET is a solid foundation for your college savings because it’s guaranteed.  You may purchase from one to 500 units per students and use up to 125 units per year.
