Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) Tuition Benefit

Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) Tuition Benefit

Medaille College employees enjoy tuition benefits through the Council of Independent Colleges Tuition Exchange Program


Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) Tuition Benefit


Medaille College is the exporting liaison which determines if the employee meets the following eligibility requirements:

1. Must be a full-time employee

2. IRS dependency (FAFSA definition)

3. One-year waiting period – date of starting semester with at least one year of employment


The interested employee must complete the Tuition Exchange Request Application form that the liaison has emailed to you. This will begin the process. The employee must complete said application prior to October 23 of the year prior to enrolling at the selected institutions. If qualifications are met, the exporting institution (Medaille) will complete the CIC-TEP student application and forward to the selected institutions.

The student should have applied for admission at the selected institutions and have completed all required financial aid application required by each institution. The host/importing institutions will inform the student of his acceptance or denial into the program. Please be aware that many institutions have limits on the number of slots that they have available for new students each year.

To inquire about your application, please do not contact CIC as they do not maintain information on individual applications.

If the dependent is accepted into an institution, it is for full tuition (unless noted) for four years. The host institution may use other financial aid for the tuition as well.

If the qualifying employee drops below full-time employment (part-time or dismissal) at the exporting institution or if the participating institution discontinues membership benefits, the tuition benefit will be terminated at the end of the term.


Responsibilities of the Student Applicant

  • Must maintain good academic and social standing, as well as satisfactory academic progress.
  • Must be responsible for all non-tuition expenses such as room and board, fees, books and supplies, etc.
  • Student applicants must be admissible at the host institution in accordance with their admission policies and must comply with the financial aid procedures at the importing institution.
  • Student applicants are required to submit all financial aid awards to the host/importing institution.
  • Students are eligible for the benefit for a total of eight semesters.
  • The exporting liaison will verify your continuing education at said institution and will annually verify you. If you plan on not continuing, please notify the liaison.
