Estimated Costs and Tuition


The following is the complete list of estimated costs for the Teacher Preparation Program.

Our goal is to be transparent and informative of ALL of the costs associated with becoming a teacher. We work with each individual student to identify the most cost-effective pathway to equip you to obtain your teaching certificate. The first list is costs you may incur as you apply to the program (or any program).
