Morningstar's Top 529 College Saving Plans

Morningstar Names Best 529 College-Savings Plans shares the top six plans (out of 58) based on investment options and expenses.  The six plans earning Top Analyst Ratings are:

  • T. Rowe Price College Saving Plan
  • Maryland College Investment Plan
  • College 529 Savings Plan
  • The Vanguard 529 College Savings Plan
  • Utah Educational Savings Plan
  • CollegeAmerica

  • We've been using the College 529 Savings Plan to save for our daughter's education. While the investment returns have been hurt by the Great Recession, the total college savings is still about 5-10% above the principal we contributed.   However, since our daughter is only seven, hopefully, there is time for accounts to recover by the time she enters college.
