Four scenarios showing how a college can apply the rewards

In each scenario, we use the example of 30,000 Tuition Rewards points being submitted at the time of application.

The college awards your student no scholarships or institutional grants. In this scenario, the college would be obligated to provide a scholarship or discount of at least $30,000.

The college awards your student $20,000 ($5,000 per year for four years) in institutional aid such as scholarships and/or grants. In this scenario, the college would be obligated to increase the institutional aid offered to at least $30,000.

The college awards your student $30,000 ($7,500 per year for four years) in institutional aid such as scholarships and/or grants. In this scenario, the college has met its obligation (to provide a scholarship or other institutional aid of at least the amount of Tuition Rewards) and is not required to increase the financial aid award.

The college awards your student $40,000 ($10,000 per year for four years) in institutional aid such as scholarships and/or grants. The college has fully met its obligation since the amount of aid offered meets or exceeds the amount of rewards redeemed. Colleges may "stack" rewards on top of other aid, or "blend" Tuition Rewards into their financial aid package; colleges do not need to show Tuition Rewards separately in the financial aid offer.
