Applications open for Delaware Tech Tuition Waiver Exchange

Lottery date: Friday, Aug. 10, 2018

The University of Delaware Office of Human Resources is now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 Tuition Waiver Exchange Program lottery with Delaware Technical Community College (DTCC).  Employees who are full-time and benefit-eligible may enter for a chance to have one of their dependents participate in the program. 

This exchange program waives 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 at the end of DTCC’s Free/Drop Add period.

  • A child is defined as a biological, or a legally adopted child of the employee 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.

The student must also:

  • Apply for and receive admission to a degree-granting program at DTCC.

  • Be registered full-time in that DTCC program before the August 10 drawing is conducted.

  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

  • Apply for and be found ineligible for a State of Delaware Student Excellence Equals Degree (SEED) grant. SEED grants are provided by the state and cover tuition for Delaware-resident students. For more information about SEED, please visit www.dtcc.edu/seed/.

The deadline for submission for a DTCC Lottery Application is Wednesday, Aug. 8. The application form can be found on the HR Benefits website: DTCC Waiver Exchange Lottery Application

Current recipients need not participate in the lottery, if continuing.
