Transfer your funds

Once you’ve redeemed your loyalty points, return to your HigherEdPoints account (see Step 1 above) to transfer your funds to an institution.

Review the Checklist for each program to ensure you have all the information required to complete your transfer.

We’ll deposit the funds directly into your chosen student/loan account.
