Tuition Exchange Policy


Columbia College maintains a tuition exchange benefit program for children of eligible employees, provided certain requirements are satisfied. This policy provides additional details about this program.


This policy applies to eligible full-time College staff.


Columbia College is affiliated with two tuition exchange programs the (1) Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) and (2) Tuition Exchange, Inc. (TE). Membership in these organizations provide the opportunity for full-time College staff to permit their non-emancipated children to attend other member institutions with no or reduced charge for tuition. The organization maintains stringent rules to keep the tuition exchanges in balance between member institutions. Eligible employees who are interested in this program should contact the Human Resources Office for further details.
