Frequently asked questions.

No. You can use the assets in your account at any eligible school in the country and abroad. That includes 2- and 4-year colleges, graduate schools, and vocational/technical schools.

You can use your account assets for many qualified higher education expenses, including tuition, fees, certain room & board costs, and computers and course-related software.

Not every child goes to college, and that's okay! Funds in an Indiana529 account can be used toward other higher education costs such as trade schools, apprenticeships, and more!
