Tuition Exchange

Students Applying To Florida Tech

For dependents of employees from tuition exchange institutions wishing to attend Florida Tech (for academic year 2019-2020 enrollment)

The Tuition Exchange is a national scholarship exchange program for eligible dependent children of employees, with members from over 600 U.S. colleges and universities. Florida Institute of Technology will only exchange with dependent children of employees at private colleges or universities that participate in The Tuition Exchange.

The Tuition Exchange Program is administered by the Office of Financial Aid. The Tuition Exchange Program Liaison Officer is Jay Lally, Director of Financial Aid.


Students wishing to attend Florida Tech as part of the Tuition Exchange Program must both:

  1. Submit an application for admission to attend Florida Tech as a first-time full-time freshman in an undergraduate day program by January 15, 2020.
  2. Have the private college or university of the eligible parent/guardian submit an application to the Tuition Exchange Program on their behalf. The Florida Tech Office of Enrollment Management will then be notified of the certification of the student by the Tuition Exchange Program. For applications during the Academic Year 2020-21 for admission to Florida Tech in Fall 2020, the Florida Tech Tuition Exchange Liaison Officer must receive a student’s certification notification by January 15, 2020 to be eligible for consideration.


Scholarship decisions will be mailed no later than April 15, 2020. A student must notify Florida Tech’s Office of Enrollment Management of their acceptance no later than May 1, 2020.

In 2020-2021, Florida Tech Tuition Exchange Scholarship awards will provide full-tuition or up to $37,000, whichever is less, per academic year in an undergraduate day program. The Florida Tech Office of Enrollment Management awards Florida Tech Exchange Scholarships based on academic performance, extracurricular achievement and any other indicators of the academic strength of prospective students. The scholarships will be available for four years or the completion of a baccalaureate degree, whichever comes first. Any additional costs must be covered by the student. Room, board, flight training and other Florida Tech fees are not covered by the Tuition Exchange Program scholarship. A student who is granted a Tuition Exchange Program scholarship is not eligible for any other scholarships or grants given by Florida Tech.

When a student is granted a Tuition Exchange Program scholarship award, the student must maintain status in a full-time, on-campus undergraduate day program, maintain a 2.6 cumulative GPA, and comply in full with the policies and procedures of Florida Tech. A Tuition Exchange Program scholarship may only be used for full-time day undergraduate matriculation in the following colleges: College of Aeronautics; College of Business; College of Engineering and Science; and College of Psychology and Liberal Arts.

Students that hold a Tuition Exchange Program scholarship must be re-certified each year by the private college or university of the eligible parent/guardian and must fulfill all obligations of the Florida Tech Tuition Exchange Program scholarship.

Florida Tech and the Tuition Exchange Program reserve the right to modify or terminate this program at any time.
