Tuition and Fees:
Relay is committed to ensuring our programs are affordable for teachers. After institutional aid from Relay, tuition for the two-year program is $18,000 ($9,000 per year) for the MAT program and $19,000 ($9,500 per year) for the Residency program. This tuition price does not include the cost for licensure exams, licensure fees, or graduation fees.
For graduate students enrolled in the Residency program, Relay will defer a portion of the tuition. This reduces the out of pocket cost to approximately $7,000 ($3,500 per year).
Candidates may be eligible for financial aid. Payment plans are available for all students, and Relay also offers federal student loans.

This program is for individuals hired into Resident Teacher positions at Distinctive Schools. Individuals who successfully complete this program earn a Master of Arts in Teaching at the end of the two years. Graduate students will receive an Educator License with Stipulations (ELS) at the start of the program and the Professional Educator License (PEL) upon graduation. The Residency is a two-year program for aspiring teachers. It is a gradual on-ramp into the teaching profession and has additional supports (like a school-based mentor and three hours of class focused on practice each week). Residents take on more lead teaching responsibility throughout the first year, and then are prepared to be hired into lead teaching roles in year two.
