If you are 18 or older and have a Social Security Number or Taxpayer Identification Number, you can open an Account. You'll be the Participant (Account owner) and can have any Beneficiary you want (child, grandchild, niece, nephew, special friend, even yourself). There are no enrollment fees or sales charges. And the minimum contribution is just $25.

You decide when, how, and the amount to contribute, which Investment Options suit your time frame and investment style, and when to start using funds for college. The Account owner is in charge.

  • Enrolling online takes only about 10 minutes and you can sign electronically.
  • Once you create or log into a CFNC account for yourself, your demographic information will automatically pre-fill your NC 529 enrollment form.
  • Set up your CFNC user account in your name if you are to be the Account owner of the NC 529 Account.
