How It Works

HigherEdPoints is a loyalty program reward item.

Instead of redeeming your points for flights, merchandise or gift cards, you redeem your points for a HigherEdPoints education credit.

Once you’ve redeemed your points, simply return to your HigherEdPoints member account and follow the Transfer instructions.

We’ll deposit your funds directly into the student or loan account at your chosen institution.

It’s that simple.

My aunt has a TD credit card where she earns points and she uses it for a lot of their business transactions. [She] traded in a whole bunch of points and it ended up taking $10,000 off my OSAP loans. This was pretty much all the student loans I had left and all I could say was WOW!! It was just so astonishing for our family.

It's just so expensive now that it's not practical for people to go to higher education. When you try to find grants for school it can be a bit soul-crushing. I came across HigherEdPoints while doing my funding research. Being able to access alternative methods of paying for school is a very big deal to me.

I love what HigherEdPoints is doing and wanted to share it with my network so other students can use too, I feel like it would be a disservice not to share it!

Lastly, funding was definitely a challenge for me. I had to rely completely on student loans to get my education and with my disability, many things cost me more than it would for an able-bodied student.

I was forced to stay in the most expensive residence building because the other wasn't accessible and the student loan department wasn't able to adjust my funding to consider this. Luckily in 2013 my financial guidance counselor suggested HigherEdPoints.com and I was able to reduce the burden of these loans using loyalty points.
