TRIP - Using TRIP (Tuition Reduction Incentive Program) is a simple way to earn money for tuition or child care fees. When you purchase a cash/gift card for a participating business, a portion of your purchase stays in your TLS account.

Using TRIP cards to buy gas, groceries, cups of coffee, or even furniture can quickly help pay your tuition or fees.
