Featured College

The University of Dubuque is a private, four-year, coeducational, professional university with a focus in the liberal arts. Founded in 1852, the University has a heritage of uncompromising commitment to academic excellence and spiritual growth. The scenic 77-acre campus is located in the heart of Dubuque, Iowa.

Our mission of encouraging intellectual, moral and spiritual development dates back to the University’s founding. A small campus community, the University offers a 15:1 student-faculty ratio. Students can earn a bachelor’s degree in 16 areas; master of business administration (MBA) and master of arts in communication (MAC) degrees; and, master's and doctorate degrees in the theological seminary. Our LIFE program offers accelerated degrees for adult learners.

As members of the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and NCAA Division III, University men and women compete in 21 conference sports as well as in a variety of intramural athletics and wellness classes.

Throughout our history, the University has been known as a place of educational opportunity. Even today, a large portion of our students are first-generation college students. Twenty percent of the student population is comprised of men and women from underrepresented populations. The University of Dubuque's welcoming interfaith community of 2,000 students comes from across the country and around the globe.

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 450 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."
