You may add beneficiaries at any time after you complete the activation process. Here are some important dates to remember regarding the assignment of Tuition Rewards points:

  • Enrollment Deadline – By August 31st of the year that your student begins the 11th grade, you must enroll her in Tuition Rewards. Don't wait! Enroll your students now.
  • Allocation Deadline – By August 31st of the year that your student begins the 12th grade, you must allocate your Tuition Rewards points to her. You decide how many points to transfer to each student you're sponsoring. Most accountholders transfer all points to the oldest student.
