Grants, Scholarships, Financial Aid, and Payment Plans
TEACHER EDUCATION ASSISTANCE FOR COLLEGE AND HIGHER EDUCATION (TEACH) GRANT
The College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 created the TEACH Grant program, which will allow eligible students to be awarded up to $4,000 per year ($16,000 maximum for a four year program) in grants. Graduate students are eligible for up to $4,000 per year ($8,000 maximum limit).
The TEACH (Teacher Educational Assistance for College and Higher Education) Grant is different from other federal student grants because it requires you to take certain kinds of classes in order to get the grant, and then do a certain kind of job to keep the grant from turning into a loan.
Leon McNeill Grant (Catholic school teachers only)
The Leon McNeill Grant is available to teachers at Catholic schools who are enrolled in master’s degree education programs at Newman University. It provides 25 percent off the regular graduate education tuition rate and may be renewed each year with continued enrollment and employment as a Catholic school teacher.

Tax Deductibility of Tuition Payments
Students paying for all or part of their tuition may be entitled to tax deductions. Because deductibility is dependent on your personal tax status, you should consult with your tax specialist or accountant to determine any potential tax savings for qualifying tuition payments. The university will provide you with a 1098T for any tuition billed during a calendar year.
