TUITION AND FEES
As a teachNOLA Fellow, you are responsible for TNTP Academy tuition and fees, which will total $4,440 during the 2018-19 school year. Payment plans are available. If you are interested in pursuing a loan to assist with tuition expenses, you must do so independently, as eligibility varies.
CERTIFICATION AND DISTRICT HIRING COSTS
You are responsible for all costs associated with certification through the Louisiana Department of Education, including fees for any required examinations (Praxis exams are about $160 each) or certification filing fees ($50 application fee). In addition, Louisiana requires all teachers to take a drug test and have their fingerprints processed for a background check; you are responsible for any costs associated with state or school hiring requirements that not covered by your school placement.
Please refer to our detailed expense summary for a comprehensive overview of costs associated with pre-service training, TNTP Academy, licensure and district hiring.
Note: All of the above costs are based on the 2017-18 school year and are subject to annual increases.
