How often is the information in my college goal updated?

The information is updated automatically as any assumptions (like your target school) are changed, and as the balances in your 529 account changes.

Here’s how frequently we update each piece of information:

  • Information on your linked accounts is updated daily.
  • Information on college costs is updated annually.

The formula used to compute your estimated financial aid is updated annually, but your financial aid estimate is updated automatically as any information relevant to financial aid eligibility is updated.
