    SAGE Tuition Rewards

    SAGE Tuition Rewards (Savings and Growth for Education) is a unique, private college savings program. Tuition Rewards are discounts off tuition at participating colleges that represent the minimum scholarship that an eligible student will receive if attending a member college. Students receive Tuition Rewards from multiple "sponsors" (for example, parents and grandparents). A sponsor designates the tuition rewards to students when they begin their senior year of high school. If the students do not use the tuition rewards, they are rolled back into the sponsor's account for use by other students. Clarkson counts Tuition Rewards as part of the normal institutional and merit scholarships. For more information on SAGE Tuition Rewards please visit https://secure.tuitionrewards.com/index.cfm. Clarkson must receive confirmation from SAGE of your Tuition Rewards by January 15 of your Senior Year of high school.
