Westminster College is nationally known for its collaborative environment, outstanding experiential academic programs, focus on student success, and making higher education affordable and attainable. Established in 1852, Westminster is proud to be among the first colleges in the country open to all people, -- regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or religion -- from its founding charter by the Presbyterian Church.
Located outside Pittsburgh in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, the College offers students countless ways to "Be a Part of Something Real," but these are our three favorites.
1. Hands-on Academic Environment
Our 50+ undergraduate majors and professional programs, and our three master's programs, prepare our 1,200 undergraduate and graduate students for thousands of successful careers. Each program emphasizes real-world skill development in a highly collaborative environment. We're in the top 5% in the country for meaningful student-faculty interaction.
2. Best College for Your Money
Westminster students experience and benefit from a highly- personalized learning environment. Fortunately, the net cost of this experience is about the same out-of-pocket cost as a large flagship state institution. It's the reason Money magazine has been ranking us as "One of the Best Colleges for Your Money" for years.
3. Real Experiences, Real Success
At Westminster, education and real-world experiences go hand-in-hand. Over 90% of our students graduate with deep professional experiences, like -- internships, research, study abroad, service and leadership. Employers and graduate schools have noticed the Westminster difference: A year after graduation, 98% of our students are either employed or in graduate school.
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 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."
