Guardian Tuition Rewards

Start building rewards today!

It’s true. Your Guardian coverage can help pay for college.

Included with your Guardian coverage is a college tuition benefit. As the cost of college continues to rise faster than inflation and medical costs, Guardian is helping families keep up by providing this benefit in arrangement with The College Tuition Benefit and the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards® Program.

What are Tuition Rewards?

Tuition Rewards is a unique rewards program, offered by employers, health insurers, financial institutions, and non-profits, to address American families’ number one financial concern — a college education for their children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. Each Tuition Rewards Point represents a guaranteed minimum scholarship (discount) equivalent to one dollar, with a maximum discount of up to one year’s tuition, spread equally over 4 years of full-time undergraduate education. The number of Points redeemed determine the minimum, guaranteed tuition discount a student can receive at over 455 SAGE Scholars colleges and universities. The student may receive more — but cannot receive less.

Through Guardian you will automatically earn 2,000 Tuition Rewards Points annually for each year of coverage. You will also earn a 2,500 point bonus in year four.

How to Enroll

If you've received a Welcome to Tuition Rewards email with a link and a SAGE ID registration code, follow the steps in that email to quickly setup your account. If you have not received a welcome email, you can self-register at You will need to have your Guardian employer group number (on your membership card) to self-register, along with the password ("Guardian").

Eligible Students

Eligible students are students in your immediate or extended family (including great/grand relations, step, God and adopted children). Students must be enrolled by August 31st of the year that the student begins 12th grade.

Even if you don't have an eligible student in your family right now, you can still register and begin to earn Tuition Rewards. The sooner you register, the more points you will have accrued for a loved one when they attend a member college or university.
