Tuition Exchange

The Tuition Exchange, Inc opens doors and creates opportunities through our reciprocal educational scholarship program. A 501-c3 non-profit association, The Tuition Exchange, Inc serves an important purpose to help our member institutions make a career at their school more attractive and a degree at their school more affordable. The Tuition Exchange scholarships are competitive awards and are not guaranteed. On average, 7,000 scholarships are awarded annually, with award amounts averaging about $30,000. The Tuition Exchange process operates similarly to home tuition waivers, with the added benefit of being portable to hundreds of other institutions.

Our awards enable the dependents of faculty and staff at participating colleges and universities to significantly defray their higher education costs. And that creates a powerful draw: helping you attract the most talented employees and the highest caliber students. Tuition Exchange was chartered in 1954, starting with the support of TIAA/CREF and launched with funding from the Ford Foundation for the Advancement of Higher Education.

The Tuition Exchange, Inc. is the oldest and largest program of its kind in the U.S. Tuition Exchange is 667+ members strong!  We continue to grow, adding an average of 10 new schools annually.
