1This column translates the fees and expenses shown in the preceding table columns into dollar amounts. It assumes that you invest $1,000 or $10,000 in the CollegeAdvantage Direct Plan for the time period shown and then redeem all of your shares at the end of this period. It assumes that such redemption is used solely to pay qualified higher education expenses. It also assumes a 5% return on your investment each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The example is hypothetical; your actual costs and returns may be higher or lower. The asset-based fees may vary over time in accordance with agreements governing the Investment Options or due to changes in the underlying mutual fund expenses
