St. John's University is a member of The Tuition Exchange, a consortium of over 570 colleges and universities that offer competitive scholarships between member schools. Membership in The Tuition exchange comprises St. John's Tuition Exchange Program (TEP).
The TEP allows eligible full-time St. John's employees to apply for their dependent children and "legal dependents" to attend other member schools, and in exchange, dependent children of employees of other schools may attend St. John's. Consortium member institutions agree to remit tuition for participants from other member schools. Tuition Exchange is for undergraduate study only. A current list of all participating institutions can be found at the following website: http://www.tuitionexchange.org/.
The TEP expands the current tuition remission program to provide enhanced educational benefit opportunities for employees, but scholarships are not guaranteed for any employee. Scholarships are awarded competitively and vary annually, depending on availability of scholarship money to St. John's employees and their dependents. Furthermore, applicants must meet all of the admission requirements and be accepted at the receiving school.
Recipients are chosen according to the employee's length of full-time service as indicated on the Human Resources portion of Banner. If minimum academic requirements are maintained, students chosen for the TEP in the current academic year will have their scholarship renewed next year. A waiting list is established in the event that a recipient is unable to use the scholarship. Please note that the waiting list does not roll over from year to year. Please see the guidelines for more details.

The Application/Certification Form must be completed and returned to the Office of Human Resources no later than November 1, 2018 for consideration for the 2019-2020 academic year. Eligibility to apply for a Tuition Exchange Program (TEP) scholarship is determined by St. John’s University policy (see above for current TEP Guidelines). Certification of eligibility for a TEP scholarship does not guarantee certification or receipt of the scholarship. The number of available slots will be determined by the current number of St. John’s University “imports” and “exports” and may vary from year to year. Additionally, export applicants must be accepted at another institution as a TEP candidate. Member institutions generally are able to offer only a limited number of tuition exchange scholarships. Note: A TEP scholarship will be awarded to an eligible employee or two children of an eligible employee at a time.
