Fellows attend master's degree coursework which is partially subsidized by the NYC Department of Education. Fellows are still responsible for a contribution toward their degree, but this is not an upfront or out of pocket expense.
The tuition contribution amount 2020 Fellows will be responsible for is still being finalized. Last year, Fellows were responsible for $12,000 toward the cost of their master’s degree. Bronx Cohort Fellows were responsible for $10,500. These costs are deducted from each DOE paycheck broken down in 44 consecutive, equal installments beginning in the fall once Fellows start teaching full-time.
Immersion Subject Area Fellows will be responsible for additional coursework costs to complete content area requirements.
Please Note: Some Fellows may need to take additional coursework due to deficient liberal arts credits. Upon enrollment at your university, they will do a formal transcript review and determine if you are missing any prerequisite coursework for your master's degree. Because these credit requirements vary by university, we cannot estimate how much the cost of these credits will be, however, we can say that our universities are highly experienced in recommending cost effective exemption exams and online courses that can fulfill these requirements.
