Virginia Prepaid Tuition

The Virginia Prepaid Education Program — VPEP — will make payments to foreign schools that meet the federal definition of an eligible educational institution. Contact us toll free at 1-888-567-0540 to determine whether VPEP payments to a specific foreign school qualify under Section 529.

If the student is studying abroad through a program sponsored by an eligible educational institution located in the United States and Virginia College Savings Plan is invoiced from that qualified institution, the payout will be the same dollar amount that VPEP would pay if the student were attending that institution domestically. Any differential in the costs to study abroad will be the student’s responsibility and will not be covered by VPEP. For more information regarding VPEP, please contact the organization directly at 1-888-567-0540.
