Tuition Exchange Centrals December, 2015 President's update letter

The following letter was mailed to all TE member presidents on December 18, 2015.


December, 2015

Dear Dr. Ford,


Tuition Exchange thanks you for your membership.  With the continued support of your institution, the Exchange maintains the fine tradition of offering opportunities for every educational pursuit.  We firmly believe there is a Tuition Exchange opportunity for every student. 

In our November 2014 message we shared that TE Central had created and implemented two new exchange opportunities.  Both of those programs can be labeled successful! 

  1. The Export/Import 3 (E/I 3) program provides the opportunity for all member institutions to export up to three (3) new students annually.  Of our total 647 member schools, 267 schools are actively participating in the E/I 3 program.
  1. The Double Credit 3 (DC 3) program in 2014 had at least 37 member schools participate.  This program provided those schools the ability to export even more deserving employee dependents.

These new programs, plus the addition of 24 new schools, have led to an increase in the number of student exchanges thus far in 2015-16 by 243 students.  This is exciting news for students as they determine how to afford the colleges of their choice.

As students work to connect with schools regarding Tuition Exchange, they are often unsure who to contact.  We encourage schools to form collaborative partnerships that includes Human Resources, Registrar, Financial Aid and Admissions.  TE Central finds that when schools combine their knowledge about Tuition Exchange, the program runs most effectively and efficiency.

We would also like to encourage your school to create a student-friendly message on the Tuition Exchange school overview page (contact us if you need the location of the page).  Students, and their families, become familiar with your school and all it has to offer is by reading the school overview.  We know that they are making decisions based on the information (or lack of information) provided here.  Please encourage your Public Relations marketing team to review and align your TE overview message.  This is a great opportunity for you to market your school and attract quality students.

Included with this letter is Tuition Exchange’s family brochure.  This brochure provides your employees with an overview of our program.  We are happy to provide you with a supply to share the Tuition Exchange message.  These can be ordered online on the Tuition Exchange website.

We recognize the commitment your institution is making to be part of our membership and we are dedicated to providing your staff with comprehensive training, both online and in-person.  We recently hosted our first of three annual in-person workshops.  The sharing of information and face-to-face learning was overwhelmingly embraced by all in attendance.  We appreciate that schools understand the value of “class-room” education and are committed to making the investment to attend.  We recently announced two more in-person workshops scheduled for spring 2016.  We hope you will encourage your TE liaison officer to consider attending.

We are confident that The Tuition Exchange is the exchange program of choice.  Your membership is appreciated and we look forward to many more years of collaboration.  Should you know of schools that are not members of TE but should be, please encourage them to join.  This in turn makes Tuition Exchange a stronger partnership for all.

If you have any questions about the program, we encourage you to visit with your Tuition Exchange liaison officer or contact Janet Dodson at 402.418.1081 or me at 518.859.7301.


Happy Holidays!
