For more than 25 years, we've been helping families save for college.

Established in 1989, the Ohio Tuition Trust Authority is a state agency within the Ohio Department of Higher Education. The Ohio Tuition Trust Authority sponsors and administers CollegeAdvantage, Ohio's 529 college savings program.

CollegeAdvantage 529 is available to families in Ohio and throughout the country as a tax-advantaged way to save for the future college expenses of their loved ones. We offer two mutual-fund based plans: the CollegeAdvantage Direct 529 Savings Plan and the CollegeAdvantage Advisor 529 Saving Plan powered by BlackRock.

Investment oversight is provided by the 11-member Ohio Tuition Trust Authority Investment Board.


Ohio’s CollegeAdvantage program provides families across the nation flexible options and educational resources to invest in our trusted tax-advantaged 529 plans for education expenses after high school.
