About Your Tuition Benefits

Collapse All Expand All

FACHEX is the acronym for Faculty Children Exchange Program,. It is sponsored by the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. At Le Moyne College, all full-time faculty, administrators, and staff who have been employed for at least three years at Le Moyne college are eligible to apply for this benefit for their dependent children. Generally, anybody eligible for the full Le Moyne College Employee Tuition Remission benefits would be allowed to apply.

To be considered for a FACHEX award, the student must be accepted as a full-time undergraduate student at a participating Jesuit Institution listed below. Le Moyne College determines if the student is eligible to apply for the FACHEX benefit but it is the other Jesuit Institution that determines if they are going to award a FACHEX to the student.

FACHEX applies to tuition charges only. The receiving Jesuit Institution may apply for further restrictions. Not all eligible applicants for the FACHEX benefit will receive a FACHEX award. All of the participating Jesuit schools are obligated to award only three FACHEX awards over the number of students it has receiving FACHEX from other participating institutions. For example, if a Jesuit school has four eligible employee children from their institution receiving FACHEX benefits from other participating Jesuit Colleges or Universities, then they would be obligated to award only seven FACHEX benefits for their pool of eligible applicants.

The eligible Le Moyne employee would inform the Le Moyne Director of Financial Aid, in writing, that their daughter or son has been accepted for admission at one or more of the participating Jesuit institutions. The would indicate the name of the student and the Jesuit school(s) where they would like to be considered for FACHEX benefits.

If the employee is eligible for a FACHEX award, the Le Moyne College Director of Financial Aid would inform the FACHEX coordinator at the institutions listed by the Le Moyne employee that the student is eligible to be considered for the FACHEX award.

The participating Jesuit institution would contact the student directly regarding the actual FACHEX award decision.

The Le Moyne College employee would inform the Le Moyne College Director of Financial Aid in writing if their daughter or son has been offered a FACHEX benefit and will attend the school making that offer.

The Tuition Exchange (TE) provides a national scholarship exchange program for dependent children of full-time faculty and staff among its members of approximately 450 colleges and universities.

The Tuition Exchange Program provides the opportunity for eligible dependent children to receive undergraduate scholarships at one of the member institutions (hereafter referred to as the host institution.) In exchange, dependent children of employees of other colleges and universities may attend Le Moyne College. Colleges and universities participating in this program have agreed to remit tuition for participants from other member institution. The primary obligation of a member institution is to maintain a balanced exchange pattern, a reasonable match between students "exports" and student "imports". The TE Program is a scholarship program, not a fringe benefit provided by Le Moyne College, the sponsor institution: www.tuitionexchange.org

The following guidelines are applicable to Le Moyne College employees who participate in the program:

  • Eligible Employee: Any currently employed Le Moyne College full-time faculty or staff, who has completed at least three (3) years of full-time service at Le Moyne College as of the beginning of the current academic year.
  • Dependent Child: Any natural or legally adopted child, provided that financial dependence on the parents can be demonstrated. Ordinarily, children meeting requirements for dependence set forth by the Internal Revenue Service will qualify.
  • Applicant: The dependent child of an eligible employee who has applied for full-time, undergraduate study to a college or university that participants in the Tuition Exchange (TE) program.
  • Tuition Exchange: A program through which a participating TE institution is remitted for the dependent child of an eligible employee. TE scholarships are awarded for full-time, undergraduate work only. They are not available for graduate study, non-degree study, or second undergraduate degrees.
  • Maximum Scholarship: A TE scholarship will normally be awarded to only one child of an eligible employee at a time. TE scholarships will not exceed a maximum of four years per TE recipient.
  • Tuition Exchange Liaison Officer: Director of Financial Aid

Procedures

  • By November 1st, first time applicants will notify the TE Liaison Officer of intent to apply for a TE scholarship by completing the online application available at https://telo.tuitionexchange.org/apply.cfm
  • The TE Liaison Officer will verify the eligibility and seniority of the employee/parent with the Office of Human Resources.
  • By January 1 of the current academic year Le Moyne will be given the number of available TE "units" available for the upcoming academic year. The number of available "units" or "slots" will be determined by the current number of Le Moyne College "imports" and "exports" and may vary from year to year.
  • By January 15 of the current academic year, the selection of TE candidates will be made. First priority will be given to students who were awarded TE scholarship in previous academic years and incoming freshman.
  • If the number of applicants is equal to the number of TE scholarships available, each applicant will be given the opportunity to apply for a TE scholarship.
  • If the number of applicants exceeds the number of TE scholarships, candidates will be determined by seniority. Years of full-time service will be determined on a contractual year basis.
  • Applicants who are not selected as TE recipient will be placed on a waiting list as alternates in accordance with the selection process above.
  • In the event that a TE recipient chooses to attend a non-TE institution or otherwise forfeits the right to receive a TE scholarship, alternates will be reconsidered for any available slots.
  • Alternates who are not selected may reapply for a TE scholarship for the following academic year in accordance with the selection process above.
  • Selected applicants must accept the TE scholarship award in writing by May 1, for the upcoming academic year and notify the TE Liaison Officer of the decision to enroll in a TE member institution. Applicants who do not meet this requirement will forfeit their awards to alternates on the waiting list.
  • Students will ordinarily be able to remain in the program for four years, but continued participation depends upon yearly certification of eligibility, the student's adequate academic standing at the host institution and Le Moyne College's ability to attract sufficient "import" to offset or balance its "exports". Accordingly, renewal forms must be completed and processed in a timely manner every year.
  • Eligibility to apply for a TE scholarship is determined by Le Moyne College. However, TE scholarships are granted by the host institution. Le Moyne College cannot guarantee that any applicant, no matter how well qualified, will receive a TE scholarship from the host institution that may choose to restrict its imports if their number exceeds exports.
  • Continued participation in the program is contingent upon maintaining a GPA of at least 2.0 on 4.0 scale. Each recipient who is awarded a TE scholarship must submit a transcript to the TE Liaison Office within one month of the end of each academic year.
  • If the applicant applies to several participating TE institutions, the Le Moyne College Liaison Office must be informed of the outcome of the application process. If a TE recipient takes a leave of absence or withdraws from school, the student must notify the TE Liaison Officer at both Le Moyne College and the host institution immediately.
  • TE applicants who qualify to receive aid from other sources (excluding loans) in excess of 50% of the total cost of tuition, room and board, and fees are not eligible to receive a TE scholarship.
  • An employee who separates from employment before an eligible dependent child enters the TE will not be eligible for participation in the program. If a person separates from employment while an eligible dependent child is a participant in the TE Program, eligibility will be continued for the remainder of the academic year only.
  • If an employee dies before their dependent child has completed their education through TE, the child will be permitted to remain in the program. Dependents of deceased employees may be eligible to participate in TE under current College policy guidelines.

Le Moyne College reserves the right to review, revise and modify these Guidelines to insure an appropriate balance between "import" and "export" students.
