Tuition Exchange

The University of Mount Union is a member of The Tuition Exchange, Inc. (TE), a national organization that administers tuition scholarships for dependent children of employees from member colleges and universities. The University also provides a tuition exchange opportunity through its partnership with the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC).  

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 2022 semester have a TE and CIC application deadline of January 1, 2022.

In addition, to be considered for TE or CIC, applicants must:

  • be admitted to Mount Union.
  • file a FAFSA and submit to Mount Union.
  • TE and CIC decisions will be released by February 1. The number of seats offered are limited and vary each year.

Information for Mount Union Employees

(as published in the *Employment Policies for Faculty Handbook and the *Administrative Staff 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.

Tuition exchange is very competitive. For example, a school might have only five 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.
