Tuition Exchange

Kalamazoo College is a proud member of the Tuition Exchange (TE) program. Through this program, dependent children of faculty and staff at participating institutions can apply for undergraduate tuition exchange benefits that can be used at Kalamazoo College.

Application Process

  1. Students eligible for Tuition Exchange will need to request that the Tuition Exchange Liaison Office (TELO) at their home institution provide an electronic application to Kalamazoo College. Our Tuition Exchange school code is: KZOO.
  2. Apply for admission to Kalamazoo College. In order to be considered for Tuition Exchange, a student must have completed an application and been admitted to the college.

The priority deadline for Tuition Exchange at Kalamazoo College is March 1. This means that a student must be admitted to the college and also have had their Tuition Exchange application sent to the college by this date. Students admitted or who send their Tuition Exchange applications after this date will be considered on a first come first serve basis provided that TE spots remain available.

Notification Process

Students who have applied for Tuition Exchange at Kalamazoo College will be notified of their application decision by the Office of Financial Aid by April 15. Tuition Exchange replaces any merit scholarships and other Kalamazoo College awards that the student may have already been offered by the college. Students who are chosen to receive Tuition Exchange at Kalamazoo College have until May 1 to accept or decline the award. If a student is offered the Tuition Exchange award at a later time, they have two weeks to accept or decline the award.

Award Details

Kalamazoo College awards students the annual set rate, established by TE, each year as long as Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements are being met. The annual set rate is $41,000 for the 2023-24 academic year and $42,000 for the 2024-25 academic year. We encourage students receiving Tuition Exchange to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) so they can be considered for additional need-based financial aid.
