Holland College students can pay tuition with Aeroplan points through Higher Ed Points.
Holland College students can now convert Aeroplan miles into tuition money.
The school has signed on to become a participating institution in the HigherEdPoints.com program.
Anyone can convert their miles and donate them to an individual student. Holland College president Brian McMillan said the program gives people another way to help students pay for their education.
“Many people would like to be able to help out a family member or friend who is attending a post-secondary institution, but they may not have cash on hand to do so,” he said. “This program enables them to use their Aeroplan Miles instead.”
Donations are made in increments of $250. For every 35,000 Aeroplan Miles, a $250 credit is issued to a student named by the donor. Plans are also underway to enable donors to contribute to the Holland College Foundation.
