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
  • See List.

    Membership:  600+ colleges and universities

    • This is the most restrictive of the tuition exchange programsà member institutions must maintain a one-on-one balance of export/import
    • 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 $40 application fee for active participating students each year.
  • The Council of Independent Colleges Tuition Exchange Program
  • See List.

    Membership: over 423 colleges and universities

    • 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.
    • There is no application fee.
  • Catholic College Cooperative Tuition Exchange
  • See List.                             

    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
    • There is no fee for application.
