Application Information

Faculty and staff may apply for the Council of Independent Colleges Tuition Exchange (PDF) at any time. Most, but not all, CIC-TEP schools will require admission to the school before they will reach a decision on your tuition exchange application.

Faculty and staff may apply for the Catholic College Cooperative Tuition Exchange (PDF) at any time after admission. A copy of the admission letter must accompany your application to this program.

Faculty and staff must apply for The Tuition Exchange, Inc. certification by October 31 the year before their dependent plans to enroll in college, assuming there is not a moratorium on new certifications in force. Applications will be reviewed on November 1. If the number of applicants is less than or equal to the number of TE scholarships available, each applicant will be given the opportunity to apply for a scholarship. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of TE scholarships, applications will be certified according to the anniversary date of continuous full time employment at Saint Xavier University.
