There are many ways to enroll your child in CollegeBound Saint Paul.

You can enroll them online after they are born or you can choose to make sure they are automatically enrolled by making their birth record public at the time of birth.

In order to enroll your child in CollegeBound Saint Paul, they must be born on or after January 1, 2020, and meet one of the following two criteria:

  • Are a Saint Paul resident at birth OR
  • Become a Saint Paul resident before their sixth birthday

A child is considered a Saint Paul resident if at least one of the child’s parents, legal guardian, or caretaker make their residence in Saint Paul.
