TUITION AND FEES
As a teachNOLA Fellow, you are responsible for TNTP Academy tuition and fees, which will total $4,500 during the 2017-18 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 or certification filing fees. 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. Altogether, these fees typically total approximately $180.
