Employee Tuition Remission / Tuition Exchange Info

In Announcements, by , on September 13th, 2021

Dependent children of full-time Niagara University employees who are eligible for 100% Tuition Remission and who meet eligibility requirements for the Tuition Exchange Program are eligible to apply for Tuition Exchange. This program includes over 600 colleges and universities in the United States. Those students selected to participate receive tuition remission for undergraduate study at the university they choose to attend (some institutions only give partial remission; others may give full tuition remission plus some fees and/or room and board). Niagara, in turn, provides undergraduate tuition remission to students from member institutions.

Please note that certification by Niagara University does not guarantee acceptance by the host institution. Each institution may set its own standards or conditions on which acceptance may depend.

Information about Tuition Exchange and the list of participating schools is available on the web at www.tuitionexchange.org. Should the number of new applications exceed the spaces available for 2022-2023, nominees will be evaluated on a combination of their academic record, the employee’s length of service, and financial need. Decisions will be made by the Tuition Exchange Selection Committee.

Employees who are interested in applying for or renewing Tuition Exchange for their dependent children for the 2022- 2023 school year should contact Jennifer Garey at jsg@niagara.edu, or at extension 8670 for an application.

Applications for new applicants are due in the Financial Aid Office by Friday, October 15, 2021. Applications for students renewing their Tuition Exchange application should be submitted by November 12, 2021. It is important to submit the TE application to the Financial Aid Office by the deadline.

In addition, we are asking employees who are planning to have dependent children enroll at Niagara University for the 2022-2023 school year for the first time, to contact Jennifer Garey at jsg@niagara.edu, or at extension 8670, and provide the following information: your name, your dependent child’s name, your department, and your date of hire.
