Preparing students for passage into professional careers, the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) is Wisconsin's only four-year, private college of visual art and design. We believe in the power of art and design to not merely reflect the world but to change it. MIAD is where passion finds purpose.
MIAD's faculty consists of more than 100 artists, designer and scholars teaching 740 students. The campus is located in Milwaukee's official arts district, bordered by the Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan. It’s one of the largest, safest and most comprehensive art and design environments in the U.S.
There is a gritty energy here as we work, create, tear down, start over, fail, succeed, fail again, triumph and transition from being purely passionate to being passionate professionals. We build off of one another, collaborate and solve problems together. We connect in meaningful ways to the community and help make our neighborhood and world a better place.
We offer a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Communication Design, Illustration, Industrial Design, Interior Architecture + Design and New Studio Practice: Fine Arts. We offer a mobility program that allows students to attend 33 other AICAD schools for a semester… or a New York studio program… or exchange programs in China, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico and Poland.
Independent study, work study and internship opportunities abound. Our Marquette connection allows MIAD students access to humanities and sciences classes, the library, health care, intramural sports and health club facilities.
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."
