Tuition Exchange Program (TEP)

Shown below is general information regarding the Tuition Exchange Program (TEP) for faculty and staff at the University of Delaware. The Tuition Exchange Program provides a search for you to review a list of colleges and universities that are available.

TEP is announced to faculty and staff every year in September.

Participation in the Tuition Exchange Program (TEP) is open to full-time employees who have a minimum of two years of eligible University service as of October 31 of the year in which they submit TE applications. This program may be used in conjunction with the University of Delaware's tuition remission program and counts towards the maximum requests for that program.

Individuals who wish to participate in the lottery should contact the Office of Human Resources at 413 Academy Street. You may e-mail your questions to:

Employees who terminate their University employment are not eligible to receive tuition exchange for the full academic year.  If the student is currently enrolled in a fall or spring semester he or she will be able to complete that semester only. Employees should notify the UD Tuition Exchange Liaison, of their separation from the University.

Professionals, Salaried Staff and Hourly workers should contact Human Resources to confirm their eligibility for the program. They then should complete and submit the on-line TEP Application Form as soon as possible. The employee name will then be entered for the lottery. The number of TE slots are announced each Fall. Faculty members participate in the lottery for a second student only.

Human Resources will notify each participant regarding the outcome of the lottery and will submit the Application/Certification Form to the selected participating school(s) of each winner.

PLEASE NOTE: Your child must first meet all regular admittance requirements of the college or university to which he or she has applied. Submission of the TE Application/Certification Form does not guarantee an award. The institution will notify your child directly when the Tuition Exchange scholarship is granted. Generally, the notification occurs about the same time as the school's admission decision.

Tuition Exchange scholarship selection criteria and the actual dollar value of the scholarship vary from one participating school to another. If you have questions or need any additional information, please contact the Office of Human Resources (302-831-2171).
