Tuition Exchange (TE) is a reciprocal scholarship opportunity for the dependents of eligible faculty and staff at 645+ member schools.  The Tuition Exchange scholarship is merit-based and requires an application to be submitted by your home school in order to be reviewed for eligibility.  Deadlines for applications is February 1st.  

Villanova University‚Äôs Tuition Exchange Merit Scholarship is extremely competitive and due to the number of scholarships we have awarded in the past few years, we will not be awarding Tuition Exchange scholarships to first-year students, for the 2024-2025 academic year.

Tuition Exchange Scholarships are awarded at the point of initial enrollment as a first-year student to Villanova University.  Students not selected for the scholarship as a first-year student will not be eligible for the Tuition Exchange Merit Scholarship in successive years while enrolled at Villanova University

We know this is a disappointment to many students and families whose parents are eligible for this benefit through their college/university. We encourage everyone to apply to Villanova University, complete the financial aid documents, and see if you are eligible for any federal or institutional need-based aid.
