Tuition Exchange Inc. is a nonprofit national organization based in Washington D.C. which records exchange scholarships, enrolls interested colleges and universities, prepares and distributes membership lists, and implements policies to promote balanced exchanges. Though UVI may from time to time participate in the Tuition Exchange program, eligible dependent(s) should note that these entities are independent agencies and any participation in these programs is subject to the policies and regulations governing the entities (Tuition Exchange Inc, receiving institution, sending institution).

Dependent children of an eligible employee maybe eligible to participate in the Tuition Exchange program with the understanding that only the cost of tuition remission at UVI will be awarded to the student provided that they meet the regular admissions and academic requirements of the importing University. Participants in the Tuition Exchange program must spend at least one year at UVI and be in good academic standing according to UVI policy before becoming eligible to participate in the Tuition Exchange program. UVI reserves the right to limit the number of Tuition Exchange awards due to the Tuition Exchange, Inc requirement of maintaining a balance of import and export students.
