At Alma College, we are so committed to your success that we created the “Alma Commitment” – which includes a four-year graduation guarantee. If you meet program requirements but are not able to graduate in four years (eight terms), the college will pay the tuition costs for your ninth term.
As part of the Alma Commitment, you’ll have an experiential learning opportunity that meets your personal or professional goals - funded by an Alma Venture or other grant. You will have up to $2,500 to put your classroom learning into practice through a remarkable internship, research fellowship, hands-on clinical experience, off-campus study, campus leadership opportunity or another approved learning experience.
Located an hour north of Lansing, Michigan’s state capital, Alma enrolls 1,400 undergraduate students on a 128-acre campus with an adjacent 200-acre ecological tract. We’re at our best working with students who don't have all the answers but love to ask the questions. We offer a personalized education with 41 majors plus the opportunity to design your own program of study. The average class size is only 18 students.
Founded in 1886, Alma has a 4-4-1 academic calendar; after fall and winter terms, you’ll have the opportunity to focus on one course topic for the entire month of May. You’ll have campus opportunities that are important to you (performing arts, athletics, Greek life, etc.) and complete your degree with practical experiences builds your resume and gets you started on your career.
Tuition Reward Points accrue like frequent flyer miles and are typically earned through an affiliated financial institution, health insurance, or employer. These include 529 plans, banks, brokerage firms, companies, credit unions, mutual funds, non-profits and diverse financial service companies involved in life insurance, health insurance or retirement plans. Your Tuition Rewards Points represent guaranteed minimum discounts off the "list price" of tuition at many of America's best private colleges.
The SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Consortium is a unique private college enrollment marketing tool to fill a "traditional" freshman class. Our member colleges & universities are able to identify prospective students from families who are actively saving and planning for higher education or work for a company that provides good benefits... and who have indicated interest in attending a private college. SAGE Students tend to be well qualified - both academically and financially.
Employees of companies which offer voluntary benefits through select national insurers, or who partner directly with SAGE can earn guaranteed college scholarships for use at over almost 400 private colleges and universities across the United States, for their children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews, based on their 401(k), 403(b), profit-sharing or other company sponsored retirement savings plan. Tuition Rewards is available nationwide through over 135,000 participating employers. What could be better than helping to make the ever-escalating cost of college more affordable for your employees? Tuition Rewards should help give your company an edge in workplace satisfaction - and in attracting and retaining talent.
For Financial Institutions
SAGE's Tuition Rewards program is a college savings and investment plan like no other. We've expanded our program so that families can now earn Tuition Rewards on 529 saving plans, CDs, mutual funds, 401(k)s, IRAs, supplemental retirement accounts, annuities, insurance products (with cash value), reverse mortgages, brokerage accounts, certain income-replacement health insurance products, and even home equity lines of credit.
"The program helps differentiate Harleysville Savings Bank in an industry with commoditized products, and it gives customers reason to stay with the bank."
