DTCC Tuition Waiver Exchange Application Lottery Application

This application is for the use of full-time benefit-eligible faculty and staff at the University of Delaware who wish to enter the annual Delaware Technical Community College (DTCC) Tuition Waiver Exchange lottery, as announced to faculty and staff every year in July. This exchange program provides a chance at one of a limited number of scholarships which waive the fall and spring tuition for one dependent who is enrolled on a full-time basis (a minimum of 12 credit hours) in a degree-granting program at DTCC. To be eligible for the program, the student must:

  • meet dependent eligibility requirements:
    • A spouse must be legally married to the employee by the end of Delaware Tech’s Free/Drop Add period.
    • A child is defined as a biological, or legally adopted child of the employee (under age 26) or spouse who will be claimed by the employee as an exemption for Federal Income Tax purposes on the employee’s tax return for the tax year in which the benefit is received.
  • apply for, and receive admission to, a degree-granting program at DTCC,
  • be registered full-time in that DTCC program before the mid-August drawing is conducted,
  • complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and
  • apply for, and be found ineligible for, a State of Delaware SEED grant. The Delaware SEED (Student Excellence Equals Degree) grants are provided by the State of Delaware and cover tuition for Delaware-resident students. For more information about SEED, please visit www.dtcc.edu/seed/.

Participation in the DTCC Tuition Waiver Exchange is open to full-time benefit-eligible University of Delaware employees. The DTCC Tuition Waiver, if awarded, does count against the University of Delaware limit of two full-time tuition benefits per semester per family.

Employees who terminate their University employment are not eligible to receive tuition waiver exchange for the full academic year. If the student is currently enrolled in a fall or spring semester, he or she will receive the waiver for the remainder of that semester only.

Individuals who wish to participate in the lottery should submit the DTCC Lottery Application shown above. Human Resources will notify each participant regarding their standing, following the completion of the lottery drawing in mid-August.

PLEASE NOTE: Submission of an application for DTCC Waiver Exchange does not guarantee an award. DTCC will notify your dependent directly if a DTCC scholarship is granted.

If you have questions or need any additional information, please send your questions to hrhelp@udel.edu or contact the Office of Human Resources (302-831-2171).
