Tuition exchange program

Purpose

The purpose of the Tuition Exchange program is to facilitate the exchange of students among member institutions. Tuition Exchange membership confers only the right to apply for a scholarship; it does not guarantee either that the employing institution will be able to support all eligible employees in a given year or that the institutions to which a student applies will accept the student into the Tuition Exchange program.

Direct questions to the Tuition Exchange liaison officer, Christina Gormley at extension 6582 or email cgormley@gettysburg.edu.

Gettysburg College Selection Guidelines

The scholarship awarded to dependents of Gettysburg College employees shall be limited to a total of eight (8) semesters per student from each employee's family.

Application procedure

The Tuition Exchange application form is available below.

Employees interested in the program may contact the TE officer in the spring of the student’s junior year or early fall of the senior year of high school. All application forms should be forwarded to the TE officer by December 15 of the student’s senior year of high school.

Tuition Exchange Application

Once the application and dependent information are received, the TE officer confirms that the candidate meets the requirements set forth in the campus TE eligibility policy. The form is then entered into the Tuition Exchange portal. The application will be acknowledged by that institution when received. Once the decision has been made whether to accept or reject the student, the student and the exporting TE officer will be notified. After being notified, the student is to notify the exporting TE Liaison (Chris Gormley) whether or not he/she will attend the institution where accepted

Renewals

The Tuition Exchange Scholarships are awarded for 8 semesters of undergraduate study. However, eligibility of the employee and dependent must be confirmed each year. TE scholars should send an email to the TE Liaison (Chris Gormley) by January 30, confirming they will remain at the same Tuition Exchange School for the next academic year.

Standards of admittance

New applicants for TE scholarships must meet the admissions criteria for the institution, and may have to meet more demanding standards if the institution has initiated these to select among TE applicants. Renewing TE export students must maintain the academic and behavioral standards required of all students by their host college and other standards set forth on the original Certification/Application form.
