To determine the different payments available through the Maryland Prepaid College Trust, just follow these steps:
Choose a Tuition Plan, this determines the number of years of college you want to purchase as well as the type of college, university or community college.
Choose a Payment Option, the choices are extended monthly, 5 year monthly, annual or lump sum.
Pick the grade of school your child is currently in. For children not yet attending school, choose the age they were as of September 1, 2012.
Now press 'Calculate'. A table will appear showing the price you chose in blue as well as the prices of the other payment options. If you want to view the Down Payment Options, just click the button. Again, the prices in blue will be the ones you chose originally.
