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
  2. See List.

    Membership: 750+ colleges and universities

    • This is the most restrictive of the tuition exchange programs -> 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 $45 application fee for active participating student each year.
  3. The Council of Independent Colleges Tuition Exchange Program
  4. See List.

    Membership: over 440 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.
  5. Catholic College Cooperative Tuition Exchange
  6. See List.                             

    Membership:  71 Catholic colleges and universities (more than half also in CIC-TEP)

    • No participating institutions 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.
