For Students and Parents

A Matched College Savings Program is a type of Individual Development Account (IDA) that supports students in achieving their post-secondary educational goals and gaining greater financial security.

MCSP requires that students:

  • Complete at least ten hours of financial education and training specific to their educational level and goals;

  • Create a goal-oriented educational and financial plan.

To qualify, students must:

  • Reside in Oregon or Washington (for select Washington schools only);

  • Come from a household whose net worth is below $20,000, excluding a primary home and vehicle;

  • Be within federal/state income guidelines.
