Featured College

The University of Redlands is a small, private liberal arts and sciences university in the heart of Southern California. Our friendly campus community, coupled with access to Downtown Los Angeles, the beaches of San Diego and the deserts of Joshua Tree National Park, situates students within an environment of adventure and inspiration.

Our campus is home to 2,600 undergraduate students representing 44 states and 44 countries of citizenship. In addition to traditional liberal arts majors such as Public Policy, Race and Ethnic Studies and Creative Writing, we offer impressive pre-professional programs such as Communicative Disorders, Global Business, Pre-Health/Pre-Med and Pre-Law. An interdisciplinary program called the Johnston Center for Integrative Studies allows students to design their own program of study. We offer 50 programs of study, with Business, Biology and Psychology among the most popular.

Our campus completes over 120,000 hours of community service every year; half of our students spend at least a semester traveling the world. We encourage experiential learning outside of the classroom and global perspectives. We aim to educate the hearts and minds of our students and to create a welcoming space for all, recognizing that the unique experiences and perspectives of all members of our community enhance our living and learning environments.

The Redlands 4-Year Promise guarantees that students will complete their education in 4 years. With our generous merit scholarships, the University nurtures incredibly successful liberal arts students who go on to competitive graduate programs such as Stanford Law School; to high-earning careers at companies including Boeing, Disney, Tesla and IBM; and, to life-changing service opportunities, such as the Fulbright Program.

For Families

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.

For 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.

For Employers

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 425 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."
