For Your Benefit

Tuition Exchange Program
The Office of Human Resources is pleased to provide information about CUA's Tuition Exchange Program, a valuable benefit for members of the university community who have dependent children planning to enter college in fall 2005. The Tuition Exchange Program is a network of several hundred colleges and universities that accept a limited number of eligible students each year and offer full or partial tuition remission. The host university may provide scholarships up to full tuition for undergraduate study for a limited number of dependent children of eligible CUA faculty and staff.

Employees who presently have children participating in the Tuition Exchange Program are reminded to submit an application every year for their child's participation to be renewed. Applications submitted in October 2004 will be for the 2005-2006 academic year.
