Policies Tuition Exchange Program


The Tuition Exchange Organization has over 600 colleges and universities in the United States participating in this scholarship program.  Adelphi University has been a member for thirty-six years, granting scholarships to qualified students from a wide representation of these institutions.

We welcome applications from students whose parents are employed by institutions that are members of the Tuition Exchange Program.

The following guidelines will be helpful:

  1. It is necessary for the student to submit the Tuition Exchange application to the Tuition Exchange liaison at their home school. Once approved there, it will be processed electronically to Adelphi.
  2. The student must also apply to the Adelphi University Office of Admissions in order to be formally accepted for undergraduate matriculation.
  3. Once the student has been accepted through Adelphi’s Admissions Office, then a determination will be made on granting the Tuition Exchange scholarship.

Adelphi University is in its thirty-sixth year of participation in the Tuition Exchange Program.  Dependent children of full-time employees with at least four (4) years of continuous full-time employment at Adelphi are eligible to apply for undergraduate Tuition Exchange scholarships to any of the 600 participating colleges and universities in the United States.  An employee must continue in a full-time position in order to continue eligibility.

The Tuition Exchange Committee at Adelphi University will receive applications for scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year (or either semester of that year), but the student should be applying now to any college or university he or she hopes to enter in fall 2015.

Upon request, you must be able to provide the student’s financial dependence on the parent(s).  Dependent children who already possess a bachelor’s degree are not eligible to participate in the Tuition Exchange Program.  Successful candidates must be accepted for registration at these institutions for the fall 2015 semester as a full-time student.  Tuition exchange scholarships are awarded for a period of one year and must be re-applied for on an annual basis.  Awards are based on GPA, SAT/ACT scores, etc. (see application for specific documentation), which are evaluated by the Tuition Exchange Committee.

Please be aware that:

  1. It is the student’s responsibility to gain acceptance to the Tuition Exchange college or university for the 2015-2016 academic year.
  2. If a student is awarded a T.E. scholarship by Adelphi, this scholarship is contingent upon the import school approving the student through the rules and requirements of their Tuition Exchange Program. Please note, each institution uses its own acceptance formula and deadlines for granting T.E. awards.

Information regarding the Tuition Exchange Scholarship and a complete list of participating schools is available at: and please review the Guidelines and Criteria document for further information and Application form to apply.  Application forms are also available from the Office of Human Resources.

Applications must be submitted to my attention at Levermore Hall, Room 203 by Monday December 8, 2014.  If back-up documentation such as transcripts, SAT/ACT scores, etc., are not available by this date, please submit your application and advise us when the additional documentation will be submitted in order to determine if we can accept them.
