Paying your bill with a 529 plan

If you’re paying for college with a 529 college savings plan, your plan provider should send the funds directly to you. After you receive the funds, you can make a payment online via our secure billing & payment system.  Student login / Authorized User login  Additional instructions on how to make payment online can be found here.

If your 529 college savings plan cannot send the funds directly to you, they can mail a check to us. Be sure to allow 14+ business days after you request a payment for your payment to reach us and be applied to the student account.

Instruct your plan provider to make the check payable to Purdue University, include your first and last names, and your 10-digit Purdue ID number. Have them mail your check to:
