St. John’s University is a member of the Tuition
Exchange Program (TEP), which enables eligible employees
and their dependents to receive tuition remission for undergraduate
studies at participating colleges and universities. Those who may
apply to the program are as follows: 1) administrators with at
least two years of full-time service and their eligible dependent
children and legal dependents and 2) full-time faculty with at
least three years of full-time service and their eligible dependent
children and legal dependents.
The TEP expands our current tuition remission
program by providing additional educational benefits. However,
scholarships are not guaranteed to any employee or faculty member.
They are competitive awards that will vary annually, depending on
the availability of scholarships for St. John’s University.
Furthermore, the applicant must meet all the admission requirements
and be offered a Tuition Exchange scholarship by the receiving
school. A current list of participating institutions can be found
Faculty members and employees who would like to apply for the
2014–2015 academic year must complete an application/certification
form and return it to the University’s TEP liaison officer, Soraya
Casanova, no later than November 1, 2013. The
application/certification form and TEP guidelines can be found on
the University website: stjohns.edu/faculty/hr/benefits/tuitionex.stj.
Contract faculty should refer to Section 15.09 of the Collective
Bargaining Agreement for additional information regarding
eligibility details. Note: A TEP scholarship will
be awarded to one eligible employee per family or one
child of an eligible employee per family at a time.
