Option 2: Tuition Exchange Program - Your Dependent Only (up to age 26 years old):

Student - Tuition Exchange Undergraduate (only) Degree:

Franklin Pierce University participates in three different exchange programs – CIC, NHCUC or TE. Rules surrounding these programs differs slightly.

  • As the parent, you must have completed three years full-time employment with Franklin Pierce.

  • The students must be your IRS tax dependent. You may be required to provide proof of their IRS status.

  • The students must be eligible for admission into the importing school (Franklin Pierce University is considered the exporting school in this instance).

  • The importing school will likely require that your students resides on campus throughout their academic terms.

  • Students are responsible for all non-tuition changes including room, board, fees, books etc.

  • Awards for scholarships are determined by the importing school – Franklin Pierce can only approve your student to be eligible for the exchange program.

 

Tuition Exchange Program:

  • Complete a Tuition Exchange Application form and provide to Human Resources. This has to be done each year that your student wishes to be in the program.

  • Your student will need to apply to the schools they wish to attend. Each school may have different application requirements which will need to be followed.

  • Once your student has been accepted into the importing school, Franklin Pierce will be notified of their acceptance and the tuition exchange scholarship will be completed.

Some general information regarding the tuition exchange program:

  • The number of employees allowed to apply for one of the exchange scholarships is based on maintaining Franklin Pierce University's balance within the programs. This is factored on our imports and exports of students.  Note, participating institutions do have the option to refuse acceptance of additional students from Franklin Pierce if they believe that an excessive imbalance exists between students received and students sent.

Our ability to award scholarships to Franklin Pierce or any of the other participating institutions is always subject to change at any time without prior notification.

 

 

** Graduate Studies:

 

Our graduate studies is available to you, your spouse/domestic partner, and student dependents. However, there are tax implications associated with these benefits.

 

As an employee, you are eligible to take graduate classes, up to the IRS allowable value for the year. If your courses taken goes over that IRS value, then imputed income will be applied after for each class taken until the end of the calendar year.

 

Your spouse/domestic partner or student dependent:

These classes are covered at 50% and the remainder of that class value is payable by you or your dependent. You will also be charged imputed income for the value of their classes. Please refer to IRS regulations (Publication 970-Tax Benefit for Education) for more information.
