What is the Nevada College Kick Start program?
The Nevada College Kick Start program establishes a College savings scholarship account with an initial deposit of $50 for all public school kindergarten students in Nevada. The account has the opportunity to earn interest and grow over the 13 year period before your child graduates from high school. The program is administered by the Nevada State Treasurer’s office and the Board of Trustees of the College Savings Plans of Nevada.
What action is required to prevent your child’s account from expiring?
The Nevada College Kick Start account is created automatically through information provided from your child’s kindergarten school. The account will expire and any remaining funds will be returned to the Program if the account is not claimed by August 1st following your child’s 4th grade year or if the funds are not used for qualified higher education expenses before the child reaches the age of 25. Please go to “Claim your child’s Nevada College Kick Start Account” to learn more about the easy claiming process.
