For meritorious applicants, the School of Education and Human Development offers tuition scholarships that, effectively, reduce tuition to $525/credit. The School makes these awards at the same time as final admissions-decisions are made.
Applications will be accepted through April 30, 2014 for the next cohort, which will begin either in August, 2014 or January, 2015. All students must commit to taking 2-3 courses for 5 consecutive semesters.
Classes meet from 5 PM to 7:40 PM during the Fall and Spring terms and from 4:20PM to 8:05PM during the summer terms. The program accommodates working teachers by scheduling the two practicum experiences over two summers, each four weeks. Occasionally, some workshops and meetings may be scheduled on Fridays and Saturdays, but no class sessions.
A decision to accept an applicant is separate from a decision to provide that individual with a scholarship. Scholarships worth up to fifty percent (50%) of the University of Miami’s regular tuition are available for qualified applicants in academic year 2014-2015.
Please note, that only applicants with Exceptional Student Education (ESE) certification may be considered for the program.
