NIC Exchange is an agreement among the five northwest independent liberal arts colleges (Puget Sound, Lewis and Clark, Reed, Whitman, and Willamette) through which eligible faculty or staff member’s dependents could apply for tuition exchange scholarships after the faculty/staff member met eligibility requirements defined in the Education Benefits Policy.
The NIC Exchange scholarship program is ending. The fall 2015 semester was the last time new scholarships could be awarded. Those with current NIC Exchange scholarships will be allowed to continue as if the agreement remained in place.
This is the version of the agreement last updated in 1989 and will be in place until the exchange program is discontinued. No new scholarships will be granted under this program after fall 2015 semester.
This agreement, between Lewis & Clark College, Portland, Oregon; Reed College, Portland, Oregon; University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington; Whitman College, Walla Walla, Washington; and Willamette University, Salem, Oregon, hereinafter called “The Institutions,”
IS ENTERED INTO to provide a means for dependents of employees of The Institutions to attend others of The Institutions without payment of tuition subject to the following provisions:
THIS AGREEMENT does not provide for any cash remittance between The Institutions. Any of The Institutions may withdraw from this agreement by giving written notice to the other institutions at least sixty (60) days before the start of the term for which withdrawal will be effective. Any eligible students covered by the agreement at the time of withdrawal of an institution will be allowed to continue as if the agreement remained in force unless there is a break in the student’s attendance.
