  • Be a U.S. Citizen or eligible non-citizen
  • Be enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student
  • Be enrolled in coursework that is necessary to begin a career in teaching

Students who change into a program of study that is not Federal TEACH Grant-eligible, cease to be enrolled, or graduate must complete Federal TEACH Grant Exit Counseling at https://studentloans.gov/myDirectLoan/index.action.

If you do not meet the terms of the TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve (ATS), your Federal Teach Grant will convert into a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, with interest accrued and capitalized from the date of original disbursement.

The Federal TEACH Grant program provides grants of up to $4,000 a year to students; however, due to the automatic federal budget cuts, known as sequestration since October 1, 2014, the award amount for the TEACH Grant has been reduced.
