Program Costs


You are responsible for Marian University tuition and fees, which will total approximately $11,010 for the two-year program during the 2019-20 school year. Payment plans may be available and tuition is often deferred during the first year. If you are interested in pursuing a loan to assist with tuition expenses, you must do so independently, as eligibility varies. If you have questions about Financial Aid, you should contact the Financial Aid Office at Marian University once you are enrolled. We strongly recommend all Fellows apply for FAFSA after they enter the program.


You are responsible for all costs associated with certification through the Indiana Department of Education, including fees for any required examinations and certification filing fees. In addition, Indiana requires all teachers to earn CPR certification and complete a suicide prevention training course. The state of Indiana does not require fingerprints for teachers, though you will be fingerprinted through either our university partner or summer school partner. Additionally, individual schools may request fingerprints as a part of their hiring process. You are responsible for costs associated with state or school hiring requirements. Altogether, these fees typically range between $300-$600.


Please refer to our detailed expense summary for a comprehensive overview of costs associated with pre-service training, Marian University, licensure and district hiring.

Note: All of the above costs are based on the 2018-19 school year and are subject to annual increases.
