The Westfield State University Division of Graduate and Continuing Education supports our community educators and those aspiring to be educators by offering a Teacher Incentive program to provide assistance to those looking to further their education as teachers.
In order to be eligible for the DGCE Teacher Incentive program, students must meet the following eligibility criteria:
All teacher licensure students ( undergraduates, post-bac and graduate students).
Be admitted into a teacher licensure program through the Division of Graduate and Continuing Education. ( Day students are not eligible.)
Remain in good academic standing
Pass the Massachusetts Communication and Literacy MTEL. ( Undergraduates will need to pass this exam in order to receive the discount; they do not need to pass the exam to be admitted.)
Undergraduate students will be charged $280 per credit, rather than $297 per credit.
Graduate students are charged $300 per credit rather than $318 per credit.
