Tuition Assistance Program with Scrip (TAPS) now called Raise Right
TAPS is an excellent way for you to earn dollars toward your tuition without digging into your pocket book for extra expenses! By purchasing gift cards for everyday expenses from a wide variety of vendors, you can save hundreds of dollars towards your tuition. Even if you do not designate a particular student, you can still order scrip and it will benefit our financial aid program for other students in need. BCS does not receive any profit from this program – 100% of the rebate goes to the participating family. Rebates are posted to tuition statements on the 1st of December, February and May. Hundreds of merchants like Safeway, Arco, American Express, Starbucks, Borders Books, Wal-Mart etc. have made agreements with a gift card center (shopwithscrip.com) to give back a rebate when their company gift cards are purchased. Families purchase the cards through the TAPS program. Example:A $100 Safeway card has a rebate of 4%. If you purchase a $100 card once a week for gas or groceries, you will earn $16 towards your tuition credit. Imagine purchasing cards for fast food, clothing, your business, landscaping, etc. Many of us go to these kinds of these places routinely, so the TAPS program becomes useful and convenient. Family and friends can be included in purchasing scrip and their earnings can also be applied to your tuition credit. Many families have used their credits to help pay for (and in many cases have completely paid for) their registration, growth fee, monthly tuition, and daycare fees.
Most families who actively participate in the TAPS program will receive a rebate exceeding $250 per year!
