T. Rowe Price's College-Savings Plan Earns an A+

This Gold-rated 529 plan offers a stellar suite of T. Rowe Price funds.

Kathryn Spica: We recently released our annual ratings and research for 64 of the largest 529 college-savings plans. Eight plans received a Gold or Silver rating from our team, reflecting our high conviction that they'll deliver really good outcomes for college savers.

Of the top-rated plans, T. Rowe Price earned a Gold rating. Its college-savings plan is sponsored by the state of Alaska, and it offers a really compelling suite of underlying T. Rowe Price funds. Most of the underlying funds earn Medalist ratings from Morningstar's analysts as well, reflecting our conviction that they're going to be great options.

Maintaining independence and editorial freedom is essential to our mission of empowering investor success. We provide a platform for our authors to report on investments fairly, accurately, and from the investor’s point of view. We also respect individual opinions––they represent the unvarnished thinking of our people and exacting analysis of our research processes. Our authors can publish views that we may or may not agree with, but they show their work, distinguish facts from opinions, and make sure their analysis is clear and in no way misleading or deceptive.

To further protect the integrity of our editorial content, we keep a strict separation between our sales teams and authors to remove any pressure or influence on our analyses and research.
