SCRIP is gift certificates that are accepted as cash at various vendors. The St. Jude SCRIP-For-Tuition Program purchases these certificates/cards from local and national merchants in bulk, at a discount.
The SCRIP is then purchased through the St. Jude SCRIP-For-Tuition Program and are redeemed by our families at area grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, and retail locations.
The difference between the discount price at which the SCRIP was originally purchased and the face value at which it is sold to you (-2% program operating costs) is credited to your SCRIP Tuition Savings Account. The SCRIP-For-Tuition Program keeps track of everything for you!
SCRIP is as easy as 1-2-3!!!
You spend $100 each week at Kroger’s/Scott’s, $25 at Speedway Gas Station, and $20 at Kentucky Fried Chicken or Panera Bread:
Total tuition savings for 1 year = $202.80
And think of the additional savings you can earn by using SCRIP at other vendors for back-to-school clothes, Christmas and birthday presents, etc.!!!
Tuition Credit Information
SCRIP tuition credits will be automatically applied to your tuition balance unless your tuition is paid in full for the 2015-2016 school year. If your tuition is paid, your SCRIP credit will go toward the 2016-2017 school year. If your youngest child graduates from St. Jude this year and your tuition has been paid in full, you may direct your SCRIP credit to Bishop Dwenger High School, Bishop Luers High School or the St. Jude Tuition Assistance Program.
A minimum of $20.00 of credit must be earned over the course of the SCRIP year (March 1, 2016 to February 28, 2017) in order to process a tuition credit. SCRIP credit less than $20.00 will be transferred to the St. Jude Tuition Assistance Fund.
