Students - Tk20 Information

The College of Education uses Tk20 HigherEd™ as a comprehensive online data management system for all student activities related to teacher or administrator certification for specific programs.  Students enrolled in any these programs are required to purchase an account within Tk20 which will enable them to complete course assignments, build professional portfolios, and provide information regarding field experiences, student teaching and administrative internships. There is a one-time, $100  fee for a Tk20 account which will be assessed to the student’s account when he/she enrolls in one of the college’s NCATE accredited programs. The Tk20 account will be active for seven years after the date of activation.

Tk20 will offer refunds for student accounts per the following policy:

To qualify for  refund your account must be completely unused
