Answers to Frequently Asked Questions Joining the Corps

Can I receive my admissions decision early?

If you have been invited to an interview with Teach For America and have a competing offer that expires before our notification date, you can request to receive your admissions decision early.

In order to request early notification:

  • You must have a competing offer that requires you to make a decision before you’ll receive your admissions decision from TFA.
  • You must provide proof of the competing offer. This can include an official letter or an email from the company.
  • If you meet the criteria above and would like to request early notification please contact the admissions team and they will send you the request form.

Once you submit your request our admissions team will reach out to let you know if your request has been granted. If your request is granted, you’ll need to submit your regional preferences early, in order to give our assignment team time to determine your regional and subject placement.
