Students wanting to attend Outward Bound with assistance from their 529 or most other College Savings Plan may do so. Thanks to Outward Bound’s partnership with Western Colorado University, we can accept 529 College Savings Plan through their Extended Studies program and anyone can register – you do not have to be a current Western Colorado University student. Registration is easy and takes only a few days to process. And, as a result, you will earn academic credit for your Outward Bound outdoor education course.
How to Use Your 529 College Savings Plan and Receive Academic Credit
Consult with your Student Services course advisor about course options ranging from 7-85 days. Make your choice and register for that course.
