8:54 a.m., Oct. 13, 2010----Tuition Exchange Program (TEP) applications for new scholarships to begin in fall 2011 are now being accepted from University of Delaware faculty and staff through a new web form. This TEP web form joins the Tuition Remission and Course Fee Waiver web forms already in use.
The deadline for Tuition Exchange applications has been extended to Monday, Nov. 15.
A lottery of eligible employees who have applied for the available TE slots will be held Friday, Nov. 19, at 12:15 p.m. in Room 261 at 413 Academy St. It is not necessary to attend, but interested employees may do so.
Tuition Exchange is a program of exchange scholarships offered to University employees for their dependent children through Tuition Exchange Inc., a national consortium of more than 600 colleges and universities. Participating institutions grant the TE scholarship, not Tuition Exchange Inc. and not the University of Delaware. This means that submitting an application and subsequent acceptance to a participating school does not guarantee that a TE scholarship will be awarded.
To participate in the TE program, UD employees must work full-time and have a minimum of two years of eligible University service as of Oct. 31 of the year in which they submit TE applications. Eligible children are natural or legally adopted children who are financially dependent on their parents in accordance with IRS regulations. Dependent children may apply to one or more participating institutions.
This program may be used in conjunction with the University of Delaware's Tuition Remission program and counts toward the maximum requests for that program.
To apply for the Tuition Exchange Program, log into web forms. Look under “BEN Education Benefits” for the menu choice “Tuition Exchange Program.”
