Tuition Exchange 2017

Illinois Institute of Technology is a member of the Tuition Exchange, a nonprofit organization of more than 600 colleges and universities that have agreed to a reciprocal scholarship program. Click here for a list of participating schools and more details about how the exchange works. Faculty and staff may apply for an eligible dependent subject to the criteria below. To be a candidate for a tuition exchange scholarship through Illinois Tech, a family member must be an eligible employee at Illinois Tech. Winning the Illinois Tech “lottery” does not automatically guarantee a tuition scholarship at the receiving school. The award depends on the number of scholarships open and the process at the receiving university.
