*Tuition rate per credit hour as well as indirect charge pricing are based on 2011-12 pricing tables (consumer price index) and should be considered a program estimate only. Indirect charge estimates are typical expenses for graduate students in the Master's in Teaching program and assume off-campus living.
Tuition note for final two semesters in program: Semester I 2013 & Semester II 2014 will be equal to .5 credit hours each semester. A tuition fee of $262.50 will be charged each semester. Enrollment during final two semesters will be considered less than half-time and thus not eligible for most federal student aid. You may request a less-than-half-time TEACH grant.
Graduate-level programs such as the Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellowship Program require that students be enrolled at least half-time, or 4.5 credit hours each semester, in order to remain eligible for aid. The University has designed its Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellowship Program (WWITFP) course schedule to ensure that you remain at least half-time during the first four semesters of your degree program.
The Woodrow Wilson Foundation will provide a $30,000 fellowship stipend, paid directly to you, which can be used toward tuition, room and board, books, and general living expenses. Fellows will be given the opportunity to choose their own stipend payment schedule. Submit your completed Payment Plan Selection Form directly to the Foundation:

The Foundation will verify with UIndy that course registration and academic standing requirements are met at the appropriate times prior to releasing each payment.
Please consult with your tax advisor for further information. It is recommended that you also maintain copies of your semester bills. As a general rule, any aid awarded above your cost of tuition, fees, and book expenses may be taxable.
If you teach in a low-income or subject-matter shortage area, it might be possible for you to cancel or defer your student loans.
To find out more about the eligibility requirements for teacher loan forgiveness, deferment provisions for teaching for the Direct Stafford Loan Program, or the Perkins Loan Program, visit www.FederalStudentAid.ed.gov/tc, which is the website of the U.S. Department of Education’s Cancellation/Deferment Option for Teachers.

All first-time award recipients must complete pre-award career and financial aid counseling, and return recipients must complete an award request and subsequent career counseling before the grant will be approved. Lifetime maximum limits exist for this federal award of $8,000 for graduate students. These grants are converted to Direct Unsubsidized Loans (with interest from the first loan disbursement) if you are not able to meet and maintain the basic award criteria.
