Tuition Benefit Programs

If you are a benefit eligible faculty or staff member, and have a high school student or a current college student, you may want to consider taking advantage of one of the three tuition benefit programs available to qualified dependents.

Summary of Tuition Benefit Programs 

 

OWU Tuition Benefit

Full Tuition Remission - Employees are eligible after six months of continuous full time service, to take classes at OWU with supervisor’s approval.  Spouses and dependents are eligible after employee has completed two years of continuous full time service. Prospective students must be admissible to OWU’s program.

Annual application is required for participation. The application form should be submitted to the Human Resources Office by June 1st.  (OWU Tuition Benefit application form)  

 

GLCA Tuition Remission Exchange Program

Participation in the Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) tuition remission exchange (TRE). Participating institutions include the 13 GLCA Colleges and Universities; as well as Grinnell College and Beloit College in association with Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM); and also includes Wittenberg and Willamette Universities. This 17-college consortium requires that the student secure regular admission to the college, complete the FAFSA annually, and pay the annual participation fee, which is roughly 15% of the average tuition cost. The student must be enrolled full-time, and may be eligible for this benefit for up to eight semesters or four years in a degree-granting program. Satisfactory academic progress must be maintained and application must be submitted annually to the Human Resources Office by May 1st to begin and/or continue participation.

For further information visit the GLCA TRE website: http://glca.org/programs/tuition-remission-exchange1

Tuition Exchange, Inc. (TE)

Tuition Exchange provides a reciprocal scholarship exchange program for dependents of eligible employees to nearly 600 colleges and universities. Not all TE candidates are offered scholarships by their top choice schools. The student must secure regular admission to the TE granting college or university. Eligibility for this TE program is up to eight semesters, or four years in a degree-granting program. Satisfactory academic progress and full-time status must be maintained in order to continue in the program. Application must be submitted annually through the Human Resources Office by December 17th in order to be considered for acceptance into the TE program and/or continue participation. If a TE scholarship is offered and accepted, this is formally awarded by the importing institution and not by Ohio Wesleyan or the Tuition Exchange.

For further information and participating institutions, please visit the Tuition Exchange website:
