Tuition and Financial Aid
Deciding how to finance the Master in Teaching Program is an important decision. For that reason, Whitworth provides dedicated staff to help you navigate the process. From your inquiry, all the way through the application process, the staff at Whitworth's Financial Aid Office is available to assist you.
Most students in the Master in Teaching Program are receiving some form of financial aid, either from federal loans or through Whitworth's various scholarship and grant opportunities. There are also outside grants available for those who are seeking certification to teach in high-need areas like math and science.
Tuition and Costs for Program
Tuition for the Whitworth Master in Teaching program is $550 per credit for the 2014-15 school year. Once you've begun the program, the tuition will not change as long as you stay enrolled. Students in the elementary education program need to complete 57-61 credits; students seeking a secondary certification need to complete 45-47 credits.
Other costs: MIT faculty members are dedicated to finding the best resources available while keeping in mind the financial concerns of students. Typically, books for the entire program will not cost more than $1,000 and they usually run quite a bit less. The fees are minimal and do not include unnecessary items such as parking or health services but are tied to costs associated with teacher preparation.
Financial aid is available to Whitworth students to support their investment in their graduate education. Students do not have to be in a low-income category to qualify, but they do need to apply to be considered for financial aid. The Whitworth Financial Aid Office (509.777.3215) is eager to assist you in determining the best way to fund your education.
Students applying for financial aid of any kind must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. List Whitworth University on the FAFSA along with the school title IV code, 003804. Only domestic and permanent residents are eligible for financial aid through the FAFSA.
Scholarships and Grants
There are several scholarship and grant opportunities available to MIT students who qualify; find more information on Whitworth's Financial Aid website.
