What is SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Program?

The SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Program is like a frequent flyer account. Parents and grandparents establish an account and ‘sponsor’ students. They then accumulate additional Tuition Rewards points through various means including automatically added ‘birthday’ points credited to sponsored students.

Tuition Rewards points can be allocated to sponsored students – who then redeem them as a direct, dollar-per-point offset against the cost of tuition at any of the around 400 participating colleges and universities nationwide.

All students are eligible for sponsorship, from newborn up to August 31 of the year the student enters their junior year in high school. There are no academic or other qualifications – all sponsored students will receive 500 Tuition Rewards points upon enrollment (for a complete explanation of program rules, redemption procedures, and ways to earn additional points, visit

Since 2006, students have submitted Tuition Rewards worth over $466 million of guaranteed tuition discounts at participating colleges. 80% of SAGE schools are listed as “America’s Best” by U.S. News and World Report.

How SAGE Tuition Rewards Work

  • Tuition Reward Points can be earned for up to one year’s full tuition at member schools.

  • Adults (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles) can identify as many student beneficiaries as they like and there is no limit on the amount of Tuition Rewards that can be earned.

  • Students must be registered by at least one adult (usually parent, grandparent) by August 31 of the year the student begins 11th grade.

  • The last date that a student’s sponsor can transfer rewards to the student is August 31 of their 12th grade year. This is also the last date that a student can earn or receive rewards points.

  • The points earned will be awarded directly to the sponsor, and it is the sponsor’s responsibility to transfer those points to the correct student.

  • Tuition Reward points may be earned through:

    • Registration – 500 points

Your Wealth Must Reside Somewhere!

Your wealth must reside somewhere! It must have a permanent place of residence. You must own, control, and have use your money, or you haven’t built any wealth, you just stashed some money away. About 90 % of Americans keep their wealth in either taxable, unavailable, and/or volatile residences that limit what you can do with their money. If what you thought was true about your money, wasn’t true about your money, when would you want to know? I first heard this question from Don Blanton, a fine southern gentleman with a distinct southern Georgia drawl, and I’ve been unable to “unhear” it, since.
