Grad2Grad Program to help Graduates during the Pandemic
20 Jan 2021 By Vanessa Cruz-Altriste
TLTE faculty are excited to welcome back UNL bachelor graduate degree recipients into its graduate programs with the new Grad2Grad program.
Grad2Grad is the Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education department’s tuition remission initiative for UNL Graduates from spring 2020 and 2020-2021 academic years.
Residents and non-residents are encouraged to apply as this new program will be in effect the entire time students take classes, including online classes and classes taken during the summer.
Grad2Grad allows students to pursue additional professional preparation such as credentials, advanced degrees, added teaching endorsements, and much more.
Professor Loukia Sarroub, Chair of TLTE Graduate programs, explains that Grad2Grad “enables and promotes students to pursue their goals in an economy that requires a substantive increase of well-prepared teachers.”
Even before the pandemic, there had been a high need for teachers. With the added stress of the COVID-19 pandemic, many are uncertain about continuing professional development when schools need it most. TLTE supports teachers and helps foster further professional growth with this tuition remission opportunity.
If students are eligible, the tuition remission will be automatically applied to their financial aid; additional paperwork is not needed.
Available only for three years, the last time to start a graduate program is Fall 2022, so TLTE encourages students to apply early!
