Our goal is for every student in the School of Education
(SOE) to be able to focus on their studies and not on student debt. A
variety of financial aid is available to our students, including scholarships
based on academic merit and financial need. We invite you to explore the many scholarship opportunities
offered in the School of Education.
All students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
to be considered for any scholarship in which financial need is a requirement
of the scholarship.
Students needing other financial aid should complete the
forms obtained through the Financial Aid Office. You may contact the Financial
Aid Office at 336.334.5702 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cost varies every year and it depends on how many courses you take every semester, too. You can find out about the estimated cost of attendance at the Graduate School’s website.
It depends. Some programs have earlier admissions deadlines; some Master’s Degree programs have rolling admissions, and others have strict deadlines. Please consult individual program pages and coordinators or the Graduate School for more information.
The VISIONS program is designed just for that purpose. If you need to renew a license, or if you wish to take a class in order to determine if you wish to apply to a program, or if you just have a love of learning, VISIONS may be the answer for you.
For most students, it depends on how many courses you choose to take each semester and your program. You may choose to take only 1-2 courses per semester, or you may take 3-4 courses per semester.
