The Tuition Exchange Program (TEP) enables
eligible dependent children and legal dependents of full-time staff
and administrators with at least two years of full time service, as
well as eligible staff and administrators with at least two years
of full time service and any eligible dependent children and legal
dependents of full-time faculty with at least three years of
full-time service, as well as eligible full time faculty with at
least three years of full-time service, 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
Faculty members and employees who would like to apply for the
2012-2013 academic year must complete an Application/Certification

2011. The Application/Certification Form and TEP
Guidelines can be found on the St. John’s University website on the

Collective Bargaining Agreement for additional information
