Tuition Exchange program features 700 colleges and universities
Marquette has added a new tuition remission benefit for dependents of eligible faculty and staff, effective with applications for fall 2019 admissions, President Michael R. Lovell announced today. Similar to the university’s current FACHEX program that includes 27 participating Jesuit institutions, the Tuition Exchange program boasts a network of nearly 700 colleges and universities.
“Marquette has long been committed to offering tuition remission benefits for its employees, spouses and dependents, and joining the Tuition Exchange program allows us to expand on that in a meaningful way,” President Lovell said. “I am really pleased that we are able to offer this exciting new program for our employees and their families.”
In addition to giving eligible employees another option for their dependents to explore post-secondary education, Tuition Exchange also allows Marquette to select from an increasingly diverse pool of students, Lovell added.
Tuition Exchange eligibility is the same as the current tuition remission benefit: Starting with the semester following five years of continuous full-time regular Marquette employment, employees’ dependents are eligible to apply for a full-tuition benefit on a full-time basis at a participating Tuition Exchange institution. Each student is required to meet the usual academic and other requirements for admission to and retention by the respective university. The awards are for undergraduate enrollment only and do not cover room and board or other fees.
Eligibility for Tuition Exchange does not qualify a dependent for admission, nor does an offer of admission to a participating institution guarantee a Tuition Exchange award.
The program will be administered by the Offices of the Provost, Undergraduate Admissions, Financial Aid and Human Resources.
