Palm Beach Atlantic University is a proud member of the Tuition Exchange Program (TE). This program enables eligible employees’ dependent children to choose among other participating colleges and universities and apply for a tuition-free scholarship. In exchange, dependent children of employees of other colleges and universities who are members of this exchange program may apply to Palm Beach Atlantic University for a tuition-free scholarship. The primary obligation of members in the TE program is to maintain a balanced exchange pattern, a reasonable match between student “exports” and student “imports.”
To be eligible to apply for your dependent’s scholarship, you must meet all of the following criteria: You must be a full-time employee, as defined by the Human Resources Department, in good standing.
A dependent child as defined by IRS standards is the taxpayer’s child or stepchild (whether by blood or adoption), foster child, sibling or step-sibling, or a descendant of one of these; that has the same principal residence as the taxpayer for more than half the tax year. Exceptions apply, in certain cases, for children of divorced or separated parents.
An applicant is defined as the dependent child of an eligible employee who has applied for full-time undergraduate study to a college or university that participates in the TE program.
