Scholarship to Support Out of State Students for a Master of Education focusing on Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction
This masters degree program has been in place for over the past 20 years serving teachers throughout the State of Maine. Beginning with the 2010-11 school year, the program will be provided completely online in order to better serve the continuing needs of educators within the State of Maine and other states. In order to support access to out of state students, a scholarship is available to defray the difference in cost between in state and out of state tuition rates. Once an individual is accepted into the masters degree program, a scholarship will be provided to bring the tuition cost for each course to that of in state rates. This tuition arrangement applies only to the courses taken as part of the CA&I degree program. An adjustment will be made to the usual out of state tuition rate as part of the billing process for courses taken; the initial bill may not reflect this discount, but you should only pay for credits at $400/credit hour (for 2010-2011). You will be assessed the normal fees for distance students. Any courses taken outside of your approved CA&I curriculum will be billed at the out of state rate.
Out of state students are eligible for financial aid. The financial aid office will be made aware of this scholarship arrangement upon acceptance into the masters degree program.
