Tuition Exchange Schools with space available and TE scholarship updates for AY 2021-2022

2021-2022 Tuition Exchange (TE) Fact Sheet

Published 04-28-2021

In Brief:

TE's annual Seat Space Availability Service:

Openings for qualified students TE member institutions will be polled annually to determine if schools can still accommodate applications for prospective students for fall enrollment after the May 1 National Response Deadline. Students and parents are advised to contact the schools of interest directly for the most up-to-date information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do this?

Similar to the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) survey. TE recognizes there are member schools with TE space happy to receive potential applicants.

Is space readily available on TE campuses?

Typically, colleges have unused capacity.

Some member schools are tight on their import and export numbers, yet they have space to do more. Thus unused capacity.

How many school members in TE?

As of this writing, TE membership is 677 individual schools.

How many unused TE spaces?

The list will be posted here with a hyperlink to access the excel document sorted Alpha by STATE. Families will be allowed to download the excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is updated as more schools respond.

How does the student apply for admissions and a TE award at institutions listed as having availability?

There is nothing different in the TE application and admission process. The student must contact the institution(s) directly for application information. The excel document created by TE will include a hyperlink to the school's website.

Being a part of the listings merely implies available space. Individual student admission and TE scholarship awards are contingent upon each institution's review of application information.

The student needs to be certified "TE eligible" by the Tuition Exchange Liaison Officer at the home institution to the prospective institution where the student applies for admission. There is nothing new with this step of the process.

How long is the service available to students and member schools?

The listings shall remain on the TE's website (www.tuitionexchange.org) through August 15, 2021

My child was able to access TEP scholarship on May 11 and attend her first choice school. I applaud you for making this information available. I hope it allows more families to take advantage of this benefit. Please let applicants know that due to the process, a readiness to be flexible at the last minute can make all the difference.

I am off to college in two weeks and thanks to receiving TE I am attending Furman University, my first choice school. Your website was very helpful and explained the process clearly and I really appreciated that. TE has made going to college more affordable for me. I am so glad this program is available, especially with the rising cost of higher ed. I would like to thank you for this program/benefit. My educational pursuits would be very difficult for my mother without TE. Thank you for enabling this opportunity for me to attend college without the stresses of trying to figure out how we would pay tuition. Thank you Cameron
