UMASS Exchange
Tuition Waiver Program
The University of Massachusetts Exchange Tuition Waiver Program encourages direct reciprocal and regional cross-registration agreements where the University enters into cooperative learning contracts with other institutions allowing students to receive comparable waivers for cross-institution registration. Under such an agreement, University of Massachusetts students attend exchange institutions without tuition charge and exchange students attend the University without tuition charge, or with payment at in-state rates to the home institution. These exchange programs are limited and involve only institutions with which the University has signed a cooperative learning contract and where the University feels the experience of the exchange program significantly enhances the learning experience of the students who participate.
