529 College Savings Plan

Section 529 College Savings plans (also known as Qualified Tuition Programs) are among the best ways of saving for a student’s college education.

If you choose to utilize the 529 college savings plan, payment may be sent directly from your provider to the University. Some plans offer the ability to send payments electronically, including Missouri MOST. For these plans, you would need to select that option and the payment will be sent to the University for application to the student’s account.

While electronic payment is our preferred method to receive funds, if an electronic option is not available a check will be mailed to us from your provider. You will usually need to allow 10-14 days for processing before your payment will reach us.

Checks can be made to “University of Missouri” and should include the student’s 8-digit ID number. The University of Missouri – Columbia’s federal school code is 002516. Checks can be sent to:
