In October 2018, the T. Rowe Price College Savings Plan received high recognition from Morningstar with a "Silver" rating due to its "smooth glide path and strong manager lineup [that] make it a top contender for college savers across the nation." The plan continues to stand out as one of the most consistent, highly rated plans in the country with ratings of Gold, Silver, or equivalent for every year the rankings were given from 2010-2018.
According to Morningstar’s 2018 report, “The age-based track’s glide path still represents one of the plan’s strongest attributes. Unlike some 529 plans' age-based options that have steep, sudden step-downs in equities at various ages for the beneficiary, this plan gradually adjusts its stock exposure, targeting less than a 6 percentage-point shift each year until college enrollment. That gradual shift in allocation helps savers avoid moving out of equities just after a market dip, when there's the potential to lock in losses. T. Rowe Price's experienced asset-allocation committee can tactically adjust its allocation by up to 5 percentage points to try and take advantage of market dislocations.”
