Tuition Exchange Programs

Medaille College participates in two Tuition Exchange Programs that allow the dependents of eligible employees to participate in tuition remission.

These programs are as follows:

  1. The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC).
  2. Tuition Exchange (TE).

These programs can be utilized only by the dependents of full-time employees as qualified under financial aid regulations.

Dependent juniors in high school that are interested in utilizing either of these programs are encouraged to begin the application process early.  Each school has that school’s own deadline and the more competitive the school, the earlier the deadline.

All recipients must apply for Financial Aid by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available in the Financial Aid Office.  Acceptance into the program is at the discretion of the participating College.  Each College within the network agrees to import a limited number of students per academic year. One program may have more stringent criteria than another, and limitations may be warranted.

For criteria and to determine eligibility, the employee should contact the Financial Aid Office.

A current list of all participating Colleges and Universities is available on the College’s website.

Service Recognition

Employees who have twenty (20) or more years of service will be appropriately recognized.
