Eligible parents and students may apply for tuition exchange through:
Council of Independent Colleges (CIC): cic.edu
The Tuition Exchange (TE): tuitionexchange.org
TE and CIC applications are due no later than January 1 for a fall start of the same year. For example, students enrolling at Mount Union for the Fall 2018 semester have a TE and CIC application deadline of January 1, 2018.

(as published in the Employment Policies Handbook)
Eligible faculty/administrative staff members whose dependent children are interested in attending another accredited institution of higher education must complete the appropriate paperwork within the specified timeline indicated within this policy. Admission into the Tuition Exchange Program must be completed annually. Mount Union participates in two separate tuition exchange programs. For a list of participating intuitions, refer to the links below.

Tuition exchange is very competitive. For example, a school might have only 5 spots, but may receive up to 100 applications. It is not an automatic exchange, but is a competitive process with the importing school deciding who to take and who not to take.
Eligible dependents of a faculty/administrative staff member cannot receive benefits under more than one tuition exchange program through Mount Union. For example, your dependent is not eligible to receive a baccalaureate degree through tuition remission at the University of Mount Union, through the tuition exchange program and through traditional financial aid. As stated above, once a baccalaureate degree is conferred upon an eligible dependent, that dependent ceases to be eligible for other forms of the tuition benefit.
Tuition exchange is limited to one dependent per faculty/administrative staff member.
To receive full consideration for any tuition exchange program, the employee must begin by completing and submitting a Tuition Exchange Export Application form.
Graduate courses, non-traditional study courses, private music lessons, special workshops and seminars at other institutions are not included in the tuition exchange benefit. Study abroad partnerships, may or may not be eligible for tuition exchange, based upon each individual import institution’s policy.
