To the editor:

I am writing to remind faculty and staff members with dependent children approaching college age about the Tuition Exchange Program. As we all know, tuition costs at colleges and universities have been increasing at a rapid rate. The Tuition Exchange Program is composed of nearly 400 colleges and universities whose members may send their dependent faculty and staff children to any other Tuition Exchange school at significant cost reduction or no tuition charge at all. The program operates on the principle of a balanced exchange: that is, each institution must maintain, over time, a balance between the number of children "exported to" and those "imported from" other institutions.

The University of Pittsburgh has been a member of the Tuition Exchange Program since 1990. There are many excellent institutions that participate in this program, including almost 40 in the state of Pennsylvania.

Information packets about the Tuition Exchange Program, including a list of participating schools and application forms, can be obtained by contacting the office of Admissions and Financial Aid at 624-7164, or stopping by Faculty Records on the 8th floor of the Cathedral of Learning. Questions about the program can be answered by Suzanne McColloch, Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, at 624-7192.
