Dependents of Faculty/Staff from University of Dayton

Scholarships cover either full tuition, one-half tuition for a non-resident at a public institution, or a rate set by Tuition Exchange. They do not cover special fees, course overloads, or room and board. For 2018-2019, private institutions that charge more than $36,000 for tuition are permitted to award less than their full tuition, but not less than the set rate of $36,000.

Who is eligible?

Eligibility is based on the seniority of the faculty/staff member. Seniority will be determined by first looking at the fiscal year of hire. Anyone hired in the same fiscal year will have the same seniority. If necessary to break ties within the same year, scholarships will be awarded by a lottery system. In determining seniority, years of service will be understood to mean years of continuous benefit-eligible service. Please visit the Tuition Exchange section in the Employee Handbook for additional information.

Are all students guaranteed a scholarship?

Tuition Exchange Scholarships are not guaranteed, nor is admission at member institutions. Since Tuition Exchange requests that each institution maintain a balance between dependents from the home institution and students coming from other institutions, it is likley that there will be a limited number of slots available. Since the University of Dayton may not be able to accommodate all requests, the Tuition Exchange Program should not be considered as a guaranteed award.
