    • We have two kids that are currently in college; one is a freshman at an out-of-state university and the other a sophomore at a private university in Illinois. We feel we made a smart choice and are happy they won’t be burdened with outrageous student loans once they graduate.

      Dr. O Kent Mercado, JD

    • What attracted us to College Illinois! was the opportunity to lock in our daughters' tuition at a variety of quality institutions, along with the option of using our money toward a private university! Without College Illinois!, our daughters would be facing a mountain of debt. To any parents who are considering enrolling in the program, I would highly recommend it.

      Christine Ward and Family

    • We purchased plans for all three of our children about 9 years ago. Our oldest is now attending the University of Illinois. College Illinois! works seamlessly with the U of I system. Once we linked our account to the university, we were done. Tuition and fees are paid. Couldn't be happier with our decision.
