Aeroplan Miles can be used for tuition expenses at VIU

NANAIMO – Vancouver Island University partnered with Higher Ed Points to help students pay for education.

Students enrolled at Vancouver Island University have a new way to help pay for their education. Through a new partnership with Higher Ed Points, students and their families and friends will be able to convert Aeroplan Miles into money that can be used to pay tuition at VIU.

For every 35,000 Aeroplan Miles, a $250 credit can be transferred to VIU to cover fees, including tuition. Students can ‘crowdsource’ donations of Aeroplan Miles from family and friends that can be dedicated towards their tuition at VIU. Anyone with Aeroplan Miles can donate them to any student registered at VIU, or direct their Aeroplan Miles to support VIU and students in need.
