All students who received financial aid as undergraduates are eligible for financial assistance for the ninth semester practice teaching option. The amount of assistance will be based on the funds available through the Program in Teacher Preparation and will be calibrated according to the level of funding received as undergraduates.
Special incentive funds are available to all students earning certification in mathematics or the sciences, regardless of their financial aid status as undergraduates. These funds must be used to help cover the costs of tuition, room and board, and the application fee for New Jersey teacher certification. In addition, students receive some funding to purchase instructional materials and supplies used during their practice teaching.
Students are also eligible to apply for loans for the ninth semester. Information about loan applications can be obtained from the Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid.
