The Tuition Exchange, Inc. (TE) is a reciprocal scholarship program for children of faculty and staff employed at over 600 participating institutions. TE is a non-profit association, serving higher education by making careers at college and universities more attractive. Participating institutions include public, private, research and doctoral universities, liberal arts colleges, and comprehensive institutions.

Each institution affiliated with TE sets its own standards for admission, determines the number of TE scholarships to be offered, and oversees the process by which eligible dependents are selected for participation. Each institution must maintain a reasonable balance between “imports” (students attending the institution as part of the TE program) and “exports” (eligible dependents enrolled at another institution as part of the TE program).

Tuition Exchange is only potentially available to Salem College Traditional Age Boarding students who are enrolled full time as a degree-seeking student. Special students do not qualify for Tuition Exchange at Salem College.

It is important to work with the Tuition Exchange Liaison Officer at your home institution who has been appointed to facilitate exchange matters. The Financial Aid Office is the liaison office at Salem College. A complete list of colleges and universities that participate in the Tuition Exchange program can be found at
