Tuition Exchange Programs
The University’s Human Resources policies on Tuition Benefits (#3.1020) and Tuition Exchange Benefits (#3.1030) apply to participation in each of the three tuition exchange programs to which the University belongs. Each exchange has its own participation and exchange requirements.
||The Tuition Exchange, Inc.
Membership: More than 600 private and public not-for-profit colleges and universities, representing 47 states, the District of Columbia, and several other countries. Some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions are among our members.
- This is the most restrictive of the tuition exchange programsà member institutions must maintain a one-on-one balance of export/import over a five year averaging period.
- Because our participation is limited by the number of imports we attract and retain, an internal application deadline of October 1 and years of service are used to determine eligibility.
- There is a $35 fee for participating students each year
The Council of Independent Colleges Tuition Exchange Program
Membership: 385 colleges and universities in 48 States and three countries.
- A participating institution is required to import three new students each year -> maximum of 12 students over a four-year period
There is no limit to the number of students we can export, as participation is reliant upon the host institution’s acceptance of a Lewis applicant.
||Catholic College Cooperative Tuition Exchange
Membership: 71 Catholic colleges and universities (more than half also in CIC-TEP)
- No participating institution may import more than 5 students per academic year over the number of students it exports to other institutions
- There is no limit on the number of students exported in a given academic year, as participation is reliant upon the host institution’s acceptance of a Lewis applicant
