Federal TEACH Grant Program

The TEACH Grant is a program created to award eligible students up to $4,000 per year. Only graduate students in the Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program may be eligible for the TEACH Grant at Empire State College. Students enrolled in a certificate program are not eligible for financial aid unless concurrently enrolled as a matriculated student working toward a degree. More information on the TEACH Grant Program is available.

If you have already completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and you would like to apply for the TEACH Grant, please link to the TEACH Entrance Counseling and the Agreement to Serve below. You will be able to complete both forms at the link below.

Prior to graduating or leaving school, TEACH Grant recipients must complete exit counseling.

  • Complete the TEACH Grant Exit Counseling form if you are in your final term of receiving the TEACH Grant or if you will no longer be attending Empire State College.
