Tuition Exchange Benefits

Tuition Exchange is a reciprocal scholarship program, which finances college tuition for dependent children of faculty and staff employed at participating institutions.  There are currently 586 private and public, not for profit, participating institutions in the Tuition Exchange Program. On average, 15 to 25 schools join the program each year.  A complete list of participating schools in the Tuition Exchange Program is available on the Tuition Exchange web site at www.tuitionexchange.org.

Dependent children of the following groups of full-time employees are eligible for Tuition Exchange:

Faculty and Administrative Staff on Regular appointments

SEIU members

CSEA members

Confidential/Executive Secretaries

PCPSOA member

Technicians

Note: Dependent Children of Visiting faculty are not eligible for this benefit.

Dependent children must meet IRS dependent guidelines.  Please see the IRS website at http://www.irs.gov/ for specific guidelines.

Certification of eligibility is made through the Human Resources Office.  Acceptance and awards are determined solely by the host college.  Satisfying admissions criteria at the host school does not make awards automatic. 

If your child is interested in applying for a Tuition Exchange award at one or more of the participating schools, please complete the Tuition Exchange Eligibility Questionnaire and email it to Debra Mousaw, Director of Human Resources at dmousaw@stlawu.edu.
