I'm a big fan of the prepaid program. By contributing, you are locking in your return at the inflation rate of tuition or the various other programs available. Your return in the 529 will be based on market returns. Our daughter is going to start her freshman year in the fall. The prepaid plan worked out great because we were grandfathered in for purposes of the "differential payment". We also have a 529, but the Prepaid Plan really outperformed, as the tuition inflation rate has outperformed a balanced portfolio.
