(WGEM) -- Parents in Illinois have only two weeks to sign up for this year's College Illinois 529 Prepaid Tuition program.
The program allows parents to lock in a tuition rate ahead of time and pay into a low-risk investment fund.
The current contract pricing ends April 30.
Officials say for a child born today, the cost to attend a four-year public university is projected to be $180,000.
