The program

Upon admittance to Reed College through the regular admissions process, those eligible will receive a waiver of full tuition and required fees.

Upon admittance to any other college outside the tuition exchange program, those eligible will receive a grant in an amount not exceeding two-thirds of tuition and required fees at the college attended, but the grant may not exceed more than two-thirds of Reed College's tuition and required fees.

The exact percentage of the grant may depend in part upon Reed College's budgetary situation, and any change of the percentage in effect for any given academic year will be announced as soon as possible in the year preceding.

Payment will be made directly by Reed College to the other college. The receiving college may include the amount of this grant in determining financial aid need for the student. Questions regarding financial aid should be directed to the attending college.
