Over 85% of the student body in the Union – TIES program receive some form of financial assistance. The cost of graduate education is an investment in your present and future. All attempts are made to bridge this temporary financial obligation.

2021 – 2022 tuition is $7,920 for each semester. There are three 6-month semesters across the 18-month program.

TIES has multiple financial programs to support students embarking on their graduate journey. These include Federal Student Aid, the GI Bill, tuition reduction for teachers in training at partnered education centers, grants for educators in underserved regions internationally through the Marsha Snow Morgan Legacy Fund, and individual payment plans. Please contact an Admissions Guide to discuss any of the aforementioned financial programs and explore how you can best be supported.

Federal Student Aid: Students apply after acceptance into the Master’s program. Applications are made for the academic year beginning in September. To qualify for financial aid, a student must be a citizen of the United States or an eligible non-citizen and good academic standing. Every applicant’s financial status is evaluated carefully so that each financial aid award will accommodate a particular student’s needs. Teachers at training institutions may utilize financial aid toward the cost of training. All students must reapply for financial aid each year and must maintain satisfactory academic progress to remain eligible. The Federal School Code for Union Institute & University is 010923.
