EKU Online > Eastern Kentucky University Online discounting tuition for teachers

The learning environment may be changing, but the commitment shown by educators has not wavered. Teachers are integral to the success and well-being of communities. Whether staying late to tutor a student falling behind or delivering food to district families during a health crisis, teachers show unmatched dedication. To show appreciation for the commitment shown by teachers, Eastern Kentucky University is offering a teacher tuition discount for graduate teacher education programs.

The discounted tuition rate of $395 per credit hour will be available to educators actively teaching and enrolling in programs. That’s a savings of more than $300 per course. The tuition discount will be applicable to all master’s in education (MAED) programs as well as EdS, certification, endorsement, preparation and rank programs. Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) programs will not be eligible.

In addition to the tuition reduction, EKU is also waiving all application fees for graduate teacher education programs.

“Our teachers give so much and really strive to go above and beyond for their students,” explained Dr. Sherry Powers, dean of the EKU College of Education. “We want to do what we can to assist them with the financial challenges of continuing their education and help them in reaching their professional goals, be it a rank increase, new job opportunity or professional development.”
