It's true. Offering Colonial Life can help pay for college

Included with your Colonial offerings is The College Tuition Benefit. As the cost of college continues to rise faster than inflation and medical costs1, Colonial is helping families keep up by providing this benefit in arrangement with SAGE College Tuition Benefit.

  • Employees who meet with Colonial earn Tuition Rewards, and ongoing annual rewards based on the plan selected by their employer.
  • One Tuition Reward point = $1 in guaranteed minimum tuition reduction.
  • Tuition Rewards can be used at nearly 400 colleges and universities. 80% of the colleges are ranked among "America's Best" by US News and World Report in 2016.
  • Members can share the benefit with eligible relatives, including children, nieces, nephews, step-children and grandchildren, subject to certain restrictions.
  • Colleges participate as a way to boost their student recruitment.
