Tuition Reduction Incentive Program


The Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (T.R.I.P.) is an exciting opportunity to accumulate credit toward tuition costs. Families who use TRIP can potentially reduce their tuition by hundreds of dollars each year by shopping at participating merchants. Through TRIP, gift certificates from grocery stores, restaurants and many other businesses are purchased at a discount. The certificates are then sold to participating families at face value, with the discount passed on in the form of a tuition credit.

Anyone may participate in TRIP and help reduce a family’s tuition! Grandparents, aunts, uncles, church members and friends can enroll in TRIP and designate their credits to go to a specific family’s tuition account. They may also choose to designate their credits to go to a Scholarship Fund, which assists many families. At Lumen Christi, families who are planning to eventually enroll their children can also participate in TRIP by “banking” their credits. Their TRIP credits will be held until their child begins their freshman year at Lumen Christi.

TRIP hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7:30 until 3:30. Regular TRIP must be dropped off by 9:00 a.m. on Thursday for pick up the following Tuesday. A TRIP order dropped off after 9:00 a.m. will not be processed until the following week.

Be sure to come in and use TRIP because it will help to build your credits throughout the year and keep you in the “habit”… And this is a good habit! Tell all of your family and friends about TRIP and have them participate-it really is so easy!
