E/I 3 allows each TE member institution, in satisfactory administrative standing, to export three students each academic year regardless of balance and number of annual incoming imports. Member schools may export annually up to three students, regardless of balance. TE member schools participating in the E/I 3 program shall annually award TE scholarships to at least an equal number of E/I 3 admitted students eligible for TE import up to three for balance purposes. It is possible that an E/I 3 school successfully exports up to three E/I 3 students annually but is not equally successful in importing students. Provided the TE member school has made a good faith effort to advertise and provide TE import scholarships to all qualified, eligible import students, the school has met the expectations of TE Central. There is no additional cost to participate in the E/I 3 program.

This program is expiring June 2024.

Members offering full housing for the full academic year as part of their TE award package to all imports in a given year will earn one credit per semester of import credit for each student accepting and living on campus free of charge and receiving a Tuition Exchange award.  This credit is posted annually on the balance sheet for each student imported and residing in on-campus housing. The 2023-2024 Academic year is the last year housing credit will be available,
