IMPORTS (Dependents of Faculty/Staff from Member Institutions Other than Tulane University)

There are two deadlines that must be met with Tuition Exchange applications: immediately ascertain the deadlines associated with each institution.  In many cases, they are earlier than the deadline set by Tulane.  An application must be processed by the sponsoring member institution as well as Tulane.  The sponsoring member school may set the application deadline much earlier (check with your school) than March 1.  Tulane sets the import application deadline as March 1.  Import applications must be submitted to Tulane from participating Tuition Exchange institutions by March 1 prior to the academic year for which the scholarship is sought. Applications are available from your member institution. 

First-time imports (students applying to Tulane from other participating Tuition Exchange institutions) and renewals for Tuition Exchange must complete and submit applications by March 1 to the Tuition Exchange Officer in Tulane's Financial Aid Office. Awarding of import Tuition Exchange scholarships is competitive. The university awards Tuition Exchange scholarships to import applicants based on admission criteria. First-time import applicants will be notified by mid-March. Tuition Exchange scholarships are awarded to import applicants for undergraduate study only.

Award Stipulations
Students may not receive a Tuition-Exchange Scholarship in combination with any other Tulane merit scholarship or ROTC scholarship. Students may combine an award with a partial athletic scholarship. Students also may also qualify for need-based aid.

Length of Sponsorship
Dependents are sponsored for one year at a time. Sponsorship may be renewed if the employee maintains eligibility and if the family completes and submits by the specified deadline the required applications for participation. Sponsorship is limited to a maximum of four years or 8 semesters. Students receiving sponsorship after their first year of enrollment will be eligible to receive sponsorship for the customary number of years left in their program.

Yearly Renewal
Awards are made for one year only. Renewal import students must maintain a cumulative 2.300 GPA, maintain primary full-time undergraduate enrollment (at least 12 hours) each semester in one of Tulane's full-time divisions (i.e., Newcomb-Tulane College, School of Business, School of Science & Engineering, School of Liberal Arts, School of Architecture, School of Public Health) and continue to be sponsored by the exporting institution to renew Tuition Exchange scholarships at Tulane. Tulane sends out renewal certifications to the exporting institution after review of the student's spring semester grades and enrollment hours.
