|Re:||Tuition Exchange Program|
The Tuition Exchange Program (TEP) enables eligible dependent
children and legal dependents of full-time faculty, staff and
administrators with at least three years of full time service, as
well as eligible staff and administrators with at least three years
of full time service, to attend other colleges and universities for
undergraduate studies. In exchange, dependent children of
employees of other colleges and universities may attend St. John’s
University. Colleges and universities participating in this
program have agreed to remit tuition for participants from other
member institutions. A current list of participating
institutions can be found at www.tuitionexchange.org.
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.
Faculty members and employees who would like to apply for the
2009-2010 academic year must complete an Application/Certification
form and return it to the University’s TEP liaison officer, Laura
M. Luecke, no later than November 1, 2008. The
Application/Certification Form and TEP Guidelines can be found on
the St. John’s University website on the following page: http://www.stjohns.edu/faculty/hr/benefits/tuitionex.sju.
Contract Faculty should also refer to Section 15.09 of the
Collective Bargaining Agreement for additional information
regarding eligibility details.
We are pleased to offer this exciting opportunity to the
University community. If you have any questions, please
contact Laura M. Luecke at extension 2077.
