Teacher Incentive

The Westfield State University College 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 CGCE Teacher Incentive program, students must meet the following eligibility criteria:

All teacher licensure students (undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and graduate students).
  • Be admitted into a teacher licensure program through the College 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 $301* per credit, rather than $320 per credit.
  • Graduate students are charged $340* per credit rather than $361 per credit.

    *Above rates are effective Fall 2019 and are subject to change without advanced notice.
