Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Chan­tal Sneath, Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion Lennoxville, Sher­brooke

Bishop’s Uni­ver­sity is proud to join the pro­gram as a par­tic­i­pat­ing in­sti­tu­tion. This ground­break­ing new part­ner­ship al­lows stu­dents to con­vert Aero­plan Miles into funds to cover their tu­ition and school fees. The uni­ver­sity is the first in Que­bec to of­fer this al­ter­na­tive so­lu­tion to its stu­dents.

Stu­dents can also con­vert the Aero­plan Miles of fam­ily mem­bers and friends to help pay for school. For ev­ery 35,000 Aero­plan Miles, a $250 credit is is­sued to a stu­dent named by the donor.

To get started, the per­son wish­ing to re­deem their Aero­plan Miles must visit to cre­ate an ac­count.

‘‘Bishop’s is ex­cited to of­fer this al­ter­na­tive pay­ment so­lu­tion to our stu­dents and their loved ones’’, said Jacqueline Bel­leau, Manager of Stu­dent Re­cruit­ment. ‘‘We’re hop­ing this will make it eas­ier for our stu­dents to cover the cost of tu­ition.’’
