Tuition Exchange Programs

Furman University is proud to participate in the Tuition Exchange (TE) program, as well as the Associated Colleges of the South (ACS) program. If your parent is a faculty or staff member at a participating TE or ACS institution, we invite you to apply for either of these programs through your parent’s Human Resources department. Please note that you still need to apply to Furman via the Common App.

Tuition Exchange

Tuition Exchange (TE) is a reciprocal scholarship opportunity for dependents of eligible faculty and staff at more than 600 member schools.

Beginning with first-year students enrolling in the Fall 2022, TE recipients will be awarded a full-tuition scholarship. All previously awarded Tuition Exchange recipients will receive the TE amount confirmed in their Offer of Financial Aid.

You must also apply for admission to Furman via the Common App. You may apply for admission under any of the application plans.
