Unfortunately, if the divorce agreement makes no mention of the payment of college tuition for the kids, then your ex husband likely has no obligations to pay for any of the college tuition for his children. Typically, parental support ends once the children reach the age of majority.

You can try to reopen the case in family court and prove that a portion of the payments were made into the fund by you, but that wouldn't really have much benefit to you besides getting credit for the payments. The court still will not order him to pay for the other half of the payments.
You could try, but it's doubtful they would order that. That needed to be included as part of the marital assets and divided at the time of the divorce.
