Cornell College Joins Tuition Rewards

Cornell College Joins Tuition RewardsCornell College (Mount Vernon, IA), one of 40 colleges featured in Loren Pope's book “Colleges That Change Lives,” has joined the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Private College & University Enrollment Consortium. Cornell is the 14th CTCL member to be part of Tuition Rewards. Eight Iowa independent colleges now participate in Tuition Rewards.

Characterized by the life-changing academic immersion of its "One Course At A Time" curriculum, Cornell's distinctive approach allows students to focus on a single academic subject per 3.5-week block. The One Course curriculum mirrors the pace of working environments where employees are expected to handle tight deadlines and high expectations on every project, every day. Since there is never more than one course to focus on, faculty can take classes on field trips for a day or an entire block.

The academic calendar immerses students in full-time internships or research -- a vast array of off-campus opportunities. Cornell provides hands-on experiences, resources and professional development in healthcare, law, literary arts, economics, business and public policy.

Cornell is a highly-selective liberal arts college. Its residential campus attracts a student body from 47 states and 17 foreign countries. 93% of Cornell graduates complete their degrees in four years; 55% go on to complete an advanced degree.
