Oklahoma residents can save tuition in the Academic Common Market program. Students pay in-state tuition at participating out-of-state colleges. This tuition savings plan is offered when a desired degree is not offered by a college in that state. For example, if you went to a member school in Louisiana you would pay Louisiana's in-state tuition. Other participating states are Texas and Arkansas.
Another great way to save on tuition is investing in a 529 savings plan. Oklahoma 529 College Savings Plan grows your tax free earnings over a period of time. Also, qualified withdrawals are tax free from federal and state income taxes. Another tax advantage is tax deductions. Single filers can deduct up to $10,000. Married couples can deduct up to $20,000 in their tax returns.
The savings plan also covers books, fees, tuition, room and board. If you first invest in $5,000 and deposit $100 per month for the next 18 years, you will save about $53,000! That's a 6% annual rate of return! You won't have to worry about college debt!
