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.

(1) 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.
(3) 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
