Graduate School & Certification
All previously non-certified corps members will enroll in a two-year teaching certification program through our partner universities (Marquette University, Cardinal Stritch University, or Alverno College) for a reduced price. Through these programs, you will work towards your certification while teaching and have the option of working towards a master’s degree. Enrollment details and requirements of certification are typically communicated in the spring of each year, including exact tuition expenses. All quoted figures are based on the current year’s expenses.
Corps members will be responsible for financing their certification program. Each of our partner programs provides financial aid options for all of their students. In addition, TFA will offer graduate school grants to corps members based on need.
Current (2014-2015 school year) Certification program costs over the entire 2 year program (this is before the application of the Americorps award).
