Tuition Rewards® Program at College for Creative Studies
To help make a high-quality college education financially accessible to more families, the College for Creative Studies participates in the Tuition Rewards® enrollment consortium sponsored by SAGE Scholars. The program allows families who are saving for college by investing or making deposits with participating 529 Plans, banks, credit unions and other institutions/employers to earn “points” (similar to frequent flyer mileage points) that can be redeemed for guaranteed minimum scholarships to CCS for up to $35,700.
The scholarships are spread evenly over four undergraduate years, starting with the freshman year. The Tuition Rewards program is coordinated nationally by an independent organization, Savings And Growth for Education (SAGE). One point has a value of one dollar.
Families participating in Tuition Rewards need to submit the Student's rewards statement to CCS at the time of application for admission. This is done by the “sponsor” by logging onto the "Account Statement" page at www.tuitionrewards.com and forwarding the rewards statement to CCS. Statements submitted after CCS has prepared a financial aid package for the student may invalidate use of Tuition Rewards.
We at CCS are committed to making a high-quality private education affordable to all students. We encourage students participating in Tuition Rewards to apply for admission and to review our generous and responsive financial aid programs. The results of a CCS degree are impressive and the accomplishments of our alumni clearly demonstrate this. They occupy senior management positions, run their own companies, are respected exhibiting artists and sought-after experts in their fields. CCS graduates today are working for companies such as Pixar, Sony Dreamworks, Motorola, Whirlpool, Nike, Reebok, Bongo Comics, Trek Bicycles, Shinola, Fossil, Airstream, Henry Ford Health System, Ford, GM, Chrysler, Nissan, Toyota, Volvo and many more.
