Dependents of Faculty/Staff from Case Western Reserve (Exports)
Tuition Exchange Scholarships cover full tuition, one-half tuition for a non-resident at a public institution or a rate set by the Tuition Exchange. They do not cover special fees, course overloads, or room and board charges. For 2013-2014, private institutions that charge more than $31,500 for tuition are permitted to award less than their full tuition, but not less than the set rate of $31,500.
Who is eligible?
Tuition Exchange is limited to first-time first-year students who meet the dependent child criteria defined in the Faculty/Staff Tuition Benefit requirements. The faculty or staff member must be currently employed by the university and have completed two years of continuous service by the first day of Case Western Reserve University's fall term for the year in which the student intends to enroll (e.g. must have 2 years of service by 8/26/13 to be eligible for academic year 2013-14). Eligibility is verified each year.
Are all eligible students guaranteed a scholarship?
Tuition Exchange Scholarships are not guaranteed, nor is admission guaranteed at member institutions. Depended students of CWRU faculty and staff will be evaluated for admission and awarded Tuition Exchange Scholarships based on the criteria of the university to which they are applying.
How many semesters does the scholarship cover?
Tuition Exchange Scholarships certified by Case Western Reserve University typically cover four years or eight semesters of undergraduate education, but you should check with the host college or university. Dependent children are eligible to receive up to 8 combined semesters of Tuition Exchange Scholarship and Faculty/Staff Tuition Benefit, so utilization of a Tuition Exchange Scholarship reduces a dependent child's benefit available under the Faculty/Staff Tuition Benefit program.
Certification of Eligibility and Tuition Exchange application must be received by April 1 of the previous academic year (e.g. must be received by 4/1/13 for students beginning August 2013).
- Establish eligibility by completing the Eligibility Certification form[PDF] and returning the form along with any additional required documents to Human Resources in Crawford Hall, Room 224.
