529 Plan Information
Many states and financial service institutions offer 529 savings programs for families to save money for a student’s college education. Each entity has separate rules and regulations governing how funds may be used and how funds are sent. Always check with your 529 plan administrator to determine how and when to request the release of funds, as well as what documents, such as an electronic copy of the student’s bill, are needed.
To ensure that the funds are directed to the correct student account, all 529 plan payments and correspondence should include the student’s full name and Student ID number. Once your 529 plan payment has been initiated, please forward the payment confirmation details to email@example.com.
If you are sending 529 plan funds directly to Berklee, please consider selecting the digital disbursement option if that is available for your 529 plan. If your 529 plan sends payments by check, please provide them with the address below:
Berklee College of Music

These funds are disbursed directly to the student and the student will need to pay the tuition in full before the start of a semester to access their course.
