What is it? 

Would you like to reduce your tuition bill? An easy way to lower your tuition bill is to participate in T.R.I.P.: EC’s Tuition Reduction Incentive Program. T.R.I.P. purchases gift cards for a wide variety of stores at a discount and then forwards a percentage as a credit to your tuition account. Each time you place an order, your credit for that order is applied to your account. Credits accumulate and twice a year credits of $50 or more are applied to your tuition bill. 

You can participate as a current family, future family, or have credits applied to another family.
