Tuition Exchange Scholarship Programs
Tuition Exchange (TE)
TE is a partnership of 570 colleges and universities offering competitive tuition exchange scholarships to members of faculty and staff dependent children at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
Eligible employees include full-time faculty and staff who have completed at least two (2) consecutive years of full-time employment with FDU at the time the application. Application for the TE program does not guarantee acceptance at a TE member institution or a TE scholarship. Information with regards to the application process (for the following academic year) is distributed to the community the Fall of each year.
TE scholarships are for undergraduate programs for IRS dependent children. Approved scholarships for undergraduate studies for IRS dependent children are granted for up to a maximum of 8 consecutive semesters or until the end of the academic year in which they turn 24. Dependent child(ren) that has a previously documented learning disability may continue eligibility for one additional academic year after turning age 24. Documentation must be submitted to FDU’s liaison officer for approval. Approval on an export basis does not guarantee approval by the importing institution. The rules established by Tuition Exchange, Inc. state that even if you are eligible to apply for an award for your eligible child, you may not receive an award because each institution is obligated to maintain a balance between students sent on the exchange (exports) and students received on the exchange (imports). In extreme cases, where there is a serious imbalance (many more exports than imports), the institution is formally prohibited from sending students on the exchange. If awarded a scholarship on both an export and import basis, the employee must remain a full time regular employee to retain the scholarship on an export basis.
A list of participating institutions as well as the online export application may be found at Tuition Exchange.
Tuition Exchange Program (CIC-TEP)
CIC-TEP is a partnership of 438 colleges that participate in their scholarship program. CIC-TEP is available to IRS dependent children for undergraduate studies. Employees and spouses may also apply for both undergraduate studies as well as for graduate programs. Please visit the list of schools on the CIC-TEP website to determine eligible degrees of studies as an import student.
On an export basis, full-time faculty and staff, who have completed at least two (2) consecutive years of full-time regular employment with Fairleigh Dickinson University are eligible to apply for participation in the CIC-TEP program on behalf of their qualified dependent child, spouse, or self.
The importing school has the final decision on admissions as well as accepting the application under CIC-TEP. If awarded a scholarship on both an export and import
basis, the employee must remain a full time regular employee to retain the scholarship on an export basis. There is no deadline to apply on an export basis. However, the importing schools may have their own deadlines to approve scholarships. Applications are submitted directly through the CIC-TEP website
If circumstances allow, you may apply simultaneously for both CIC-TEP and TE.
The current liaison officer for Fairleigh Dickinson University is Stefanie Miller, Assistant Vice President for Human Resources.
