Tuition Exchange

The Tuition Exchange program allows CUA employees to apply to participate in this program. This scholarship type program is specifically for college-age dependent children interested in attending other colleges or universities participating in the National Tuition Exchange Program. To view a complete list of participating colleges and universities, visit

Awards, if granted, are made for one academic year at a time. A new application must be submitted for each academic year.

College age children of CUA employees must plan to enroll or attend institutions participating in the National Tuition Exchange Arrangement (NTEA - see one year before the academic year in which they will begin school. For example, if a CUA employee's college-aged dependent child wishes to attend a college or university in the NTEA starting in the fall semester of 2016, the CUA employee would have to apply for the tuition exchange scholarship in the fall of 2015.

The Guidelines limit the program to children of regular full-time employees of CUA who have worked full-time for at least two continuous years prior to the commencement of the academic year for which the eligible student dependent would initiate his/her studies.
