Reducing Sales Charges on Class A and 529-A Shares

Investors can reduce up-front sales charges with larger purchase amounts and account values.

Investors or financial professionals should notify American Funds when a purchase is eligible for a reduced sales charge; otherwise, the maximum sales charge may be applied.

CollegeAmerica is a nationwide plan sponsored by Virginia 5 2 9.

* A 1% contingent deferred sales charge may be assessed on redemptions within 18 months of purchase.

† A 0.75% contingent deferred sales charge may be assessed on redemptions within 18 months of purchase.

Investments are not FDIC-insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity, so they may lose value.

Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses, summary prospectuses and CollegeAmerica Program Description, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing. CollegeAmerica is distributed by American Funds Distributors, Inc. and sold through unaffiliated intermediaries.

Depending on your state of residence, there may be an in-state plan that provides state tax and other state benefits, such as financial aid, scholarship funds and protection from creditors, not available through CollegeAmerica. Before investing in any state's 529 plan, investors should consult a tax advisor. CollegeAmerica is sponsored by Virginia529℠.
