Tuition Reimbursement, Loan Forgiveness, and other Financial Assistance

Several SREB states offer tuition reimbursement programs to full-time teachers in public schools who hold a valid state certificate and who are enrolled in a course or program of study in a critical teacher shortage area. The goal is to improve the skills and knowledge of current teachers or those with a valid certificate who are preparing to teach.

Loan forgiveness programs for future teachers also serve as an incentive to encourage teachers to serve in critical shortage areas, such as secondary math or science, in public schools. Programs typically reimburse eligible student loan expenses (or equivalent cash benefits) to individuals who graduate from an accredited teacher education program, receive certification in a shortage area, and agree to teach in a public school for a specified number of years.
