Featured College

Nationally recognized and affordable, Trine University offers a first-class educational experience, state-of-the-art facilities and the flexibility of taking courses in five schools: Allen School of Engineering and Technology, Ketner School of Business, Franks School of Education, Jannen School of Arts and Sciences, and Rinker Ross School of Health Sciences.

The approximately 3,000 undergraduates can choose among 34 majors and receive the individual attention from expert faculty you would expect from a 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio and a 15-to-20 student average class size. Internship and co-op opportunities are extensive, leading to real-world, skill-based knowledge. As a result, our graduates are highly sought after by employers, with more than 99 percent of Trine graduates over the past three years employed or in graduate school within six months of commencement.

Trine is recognized for graduating students with a lower debt load than other universities. The university offers merit-based, competitive scholarships and other financial assistance programs, with the average Trine student receiving more than $27,000 in financial aid each year. The combination of a quality, career-focused education, high employment rates for graduates and generous financial aid has resulted in Trine being the fastest-growing private college in Indiana over the past several years.

Founded in 1884, Trine offers resort-quality facilities on a beautifully transformed 450-acre main campus in Angola, Indiana, including our very own 18-hole championship golf course. The university has invested more than $155 in campus improvements since 2000. The Thunder Ice Arena opened in fall 2017, with the MTI Center – which will include basketball courts, a six-lane bowling alley and esports arena – opening in January 2018 and an expansion to Reiners Residence Hall opening in fall 2018. There are new apartment-style housing options (even for freshmen!), exercise facilities, NCAA Division III athletic opportunities (23 women and men’s sports) and 60 student organizations.

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."
