Financial aid and support
University of Delaware College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) discounts tuition by over 60% for DE teachers and DE residents.
If you teach in any of the following content areas, you are eligible for the state of Delaware’s Critical Need Scholarship for Teachers: Special Education, Math, Science, English, Foreign Language, ELL, Family Consumer Science, Business Education, AgriScience, and Immersion. This scholarship offers reimbursement for two courses per academic year; if you are earning certification in a non-special education content area, we recommend you use this reimbursement to cover credited courses (since the non-credit courses you are required to take are less expensive). Please understand the following:
- You must earn a grade of a “C” or higher to be eligible for course reimbursement
- You can only submit for reimbursement once the course has been completed and the grade appears on your transcript
- Reimbursement timelines vary; reimbursement is often not issued before tuition is due for your next class; therefore, you cannot rely on or wait for your reimbursement in order to fund your next scheduled course
- Your course schedule is determined based on state mandated deadlines in an attempt to evenly and appropriately distribute a manageable course load; therefore, taking more than 2 courses per year is unavoidable. You will need to pay some tuition out-of-pocket.
The ACCESS Center of the Office of Professional and Continuing Education has a few limited small grants for which ARTC candidates can apply. Ask Michelle Parnell, Manager of ACCESS Center for information (302-831-8843 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
The ARTC process requires completing prescribed courses and passing subject assessments and a performance assessment.
All costs are subject to increase.
