Capital University (Columbus, OH), which has provided generations of students with a quality, values-based educational experience since its founding in 1830 by the Lutheran Church, is now a member of the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards college & university enrollment marketing consortium. Capital is the 21st college to join Tuition Rewards in 2008.

"The short-term enrollment consequences of the current economic malaise demand creative and aggressive marketing strategies, and our Tuition Rewards Consortium is just that," declared Dr. James B. Johnston, chairman and CEO of SAGE Scholars. "An almost perfect storm of economic turmoil and unfavorable demographic trends make participation in the Tuition Rewards Consortium more important than ever."

Capital's 2,344 undergraduates have a choice of 60 majors. The Conservatory of Music and School of Communication offers 11 varied music majors, including composition, jazz studies, music merchandising and music technology. Students can also select from majors in the schools of Humanities; Management and Leadership; Natural Sciences, Nursing and Health; and, Social Sciences and Education.

Capital offers a caring learning environment, preparing students for lifelong learning, leadership and service. Capital offers opportunities for students to follow their passions with more than 70 student organizations; cultivate their faith with a full and fulfilling spiritual life; and stay active with 18 NCAA Division III varsity sports. Capital is regularly included in Barron's 300 Best Buys in College Education. Capital is listed annually among the top 20 Midwest schools in the master's category of the U. S. News & World Report ranking of America's Best Colleges.

130,000+ students are now enrolled in Tuition Rewards, which fosters a dynamic relationship among families, colleges and financial institutions. 28,000+ students have joined in 2008. When registered students attend one of the participating private four-year colleges, the family's accumulated Tuition Reward points may be redeemed as a "scholarship" - a non-need based grant or discount - of up to one full year's tuition.

Families earn Tuition Rewards by saving for college with a variety of financial partners, including the Pennsylvania and Wisconsin state 529 college savings programs and firms such as Allstate, The College Tuition Benefit and Wells Fargo. Tuition Rewards is now the largest U. S. private college savings program (based on participating students and the value of eligible assets).

Capital is the 16th Tuition Rewards member in the state of Ohio, joining Ashland University, Heidelberg College, Hiram College, Lake Erie College, Malone College, Ohio Wesleyan University, Otterbein College, The College of Wooster, Tiffin University, University of Findlay, Ursuline College, Walsh University, Wilberforce University, Wilmington College and Wittenberg University.
