Earn College Tuition Credits with the SAGE Scholars Program
Monetta Financial Services, in conjunction with SAGE Scholars Inc. (SAGE), offers a “Tuition Rewards” Scholarship program where families can earn tuition discounts at over 375 private colleges and universities nationwide. Tuition Rewards Points (TRP) are earned annually, on the student’s birthday*, and accrue like frequent flyer miles. For additional terms, conditions and a list of colleges participating the program please visit the SAGE Scholars website. There are no fees or charges to Monetta shareholders who enroll and participate in the program.
- SAGE tuition credits can be used at nearly 400 private colleges and universities throughout the US. Students can earn up to one quarter of the cost of any one year’s tuition. Over four years, that could cover a full year of tuition.
- When students apply to a SAGE school, they notify the school of the SAGE credits and are awarded tuition credit.
- There is no obligation to attend a SAGE school, and nothing is lost by signing up.
*SAGE Scholars allows only one set of Tuition Reward Birthday Points per student, regardless of the number of SAGE financial partners a sponsor/student is enrolled.
**The last day for a student to earn reward points is their 17th birthday or August 31 of the year that the student begins 12th grade, whichever is sooner.
How it works:
When a college saver opens a Monetta Core Growth Fund or Monetta Fund account (individual, joint, or custodial) with a minimum investment of just $100 or an automatic investment program of just $25 per month, they qualify to enroll in the SAGE Scholars Tuition Reward program.
To earn SAGE tuition rewards points, they simply complete a separate registration at this link. Anyone can register—an individual, parent or grandparent. When they register, they designate one or more children as recipient of the tuition credits; 1 credit equals $1. Just by registering a student, 500 credits are awarded.
Credits accumulate automatically via SAGE’s point system:
Every birthdate ages 1-13
1,000 points each year
Every birthdate ages 14-17
2,000 points each year
Completion of profile form during the student’s junior year
A student can accumulate up to $21,500 in tuition credits.
The maximum discount a school is obligated to offset is 25% of the annual tuition cost. A student can use no more than one-quarter of the points accumulated toward an annual tuition discount. For example, assume an annual tuition cost of $20,000 and the student has accumulated 16,000 points. The maximum a student can offset in any one year is $4,000 or ¼ of the points accumulated.
