Chartered in 1857 as a small, private liberal arts college, Tennessee Wesleyan University (Athens, TN) continues its tradition today as an important center of learning in Southeast Tennessee. Our academic experience is grounded in a curriculum that encourages critical thinking, creative problem-solving, written and verbal communication, interdisciplinary study, experiential learning and global awareness.
Campus and residential life is shaped by students who join dozens of clubs and organizations, play NAIA Division II sports, lead campus events, take active roles in the community, and cherish Tennessee Wesleyan’s traditions.
Located halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga in the rolling foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, TWC thrives within its Southern, small town atmosphere. We’re a community of leaders: men and women who believe in taking pride in our heritage, seizing today’s opportunities and welcoming the challenges of the future.
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."
