What is Tuition Exchange?

Tuition Exchange is a nonprofit organization of more than 600 colleges and universities that agree to a reciprocal scholarship program. Scholarships are not guaranteed, however, many Illinois Tech dependents receive scholarships each year. Faculty and staff may apply for a scholarship for themselves or an eligible dependent as long as they meet the criteria below. Visit for a listing of participating schools and more details about how the exchange works.

Eligible Employees

Any full-time faculty or staff member in good employment standing and meeting the minimum of one year of full time employment at Illinois Tech by January 1 of the year for which the dependent is a candidate (for the 2024-2025 academic year, hire date must be January 1, 2023, or earlier).

Eligible Dependents

Any legal spouse or civil union partner, or born or adopted child of an eligible Illinois Tech employee. The child must be a dependent as defined by the IRS. (Appropriate proof may be requested).
