Tuition Exchange Program
GUIDELINES FOR PARTICIPATION
Tuition Exchange Program participation is extended to dependent children of full-time
employees with faculty appointments who
have a minimum of two years of eligible University service as of October
31 of the year they submit TE applications. The term "children" includes
natural and legally adopted children, provided that financial dependence on the
be demonstrated; children meeting the requirements of dependency set forth
by the Internal Revenue Service will qualify.
When selected, a student may participate in the TEP for up to four years,
providing the slots continue to be available to the University and satisfactory
progress is made as defined by the host school.
A student must recertify each year through the Office of Human Resources
in order to continue to be sponsored by the University of Delaware. Recertification
applications will be mailed to Faculty.
The TEP can only be used for full-time matriculated undergraduate students. Faculty members may also have an eligible dependent participating in the University's tuition remission program at the same time. Normally, a TEP scholarship will apply automatically to only one faculty dependent per year. However, additional slots are available (by lottery) for faculty who wish a second eligible dependent child to participate in TEP.
This year, the lottery will be conducted on Friday, October 30, 2015; at 12:15 p.m. in Room 261, the second-floor conference room, at 413 Academy Street. Attendance at this lottery is not required.
If a student chooses not to use Tuition Exchange in the year he or she
receives a slot, the slot will not be held for that student. The parent
will have to reapply for a slot in a subsequent year.
In the event of the retirement or death of a University employee while
his/her child is participating in the TEP, the student shall remain eligible
to continue in the program.
Participants are advised that the income tax code may subject TEP to taxation.
Completed TEP applications for the 2015-2016 academic year must be received by Human Resources no later than October 26, 2015.
Late applications will not be accepted.
