Cash for College
What is Cash for College?
Cash for College is a benefit for members of AHE or Bridgeway Academy whereby they can earn credit toward an education at Bob Jones University.
How does it work?
If you are a member of AHE, or using BJU Press materials through Bridgeway Academy, you will receive $1 tuition credit for every $2 you spend on BJU Press materials, Distance Learning products, Testing & Evaluation services, JourneyForth products, Bob Jones University Press books, and ShowForth DVDs. Tuition credit may be applied to University courses taken on campus.
How do I get credit?
Become a member of AHE or Bridgeway Academy. Purchase qualified items through BJU Press. (Qualified materials purchased from the Educators Marketplace in Greenville, South Carolina will also be counted toward Cash for College.)
How do I find out how much credit I have earned?
Your Cash for College balance appears on your “My Account” page.
Who may use the tuition credit?
The children of the purchaser may use this credit when they are enrolled in two regular semesters (fall and spring) at BJU.
How much credit may I use at one time?
You may use as much credit as you wish once per school year.
May I count purchases made by extended family?
Credit will be tallied only according to the purchaser's name. (For example, only the purchases made in the name of John Q. Public and Mrs. John Q. Public will count toward the total credit for John Q. Public’s children.)
I have a Cash for College balance, but I am not an AHE or Bridgeway member now. May I still use my balance toward BJU tuition?
Yes, you may use your balance for tuition credit whether or not you are currently a member of AHE or Bridgeway Academy. However, after July 1, 2007, only members of AHE and Bridgeway Academy will continue to accrue additional Cash for College funds as they make purchases with BJU Press.1
My child is enrolled at BJU. How do I use my Cash for College credit?
Contact the Financial Aid Office at BJU by phone at 864.242.3040 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will need to provide your BJU Press account number, your student’s name and BJU ID number, and the amount of your Cash for College balance that you would like to transfer.
1Formerly, anyone who purchased BJU Press materials since 1999 was eligible for the Cash for College program. However, after July 1, 2007, Cash for College became a benefit only for those who are part of the Academy of Home Education or Bridgeway Academy. Nonmembers who participated in Cash for College before June 30, 2007, retained their balances but did not continue to accrue credit. Those who join AHE or Bridgeway Academy after June 30, 2007, will continue to receive credit toward tuition at Bob Jones University.
