Financial Aid

The American Board realizes that the cost of our standard program—$2495 for most certifications—may not be affordable for everyone. In addition to our installment plan, which spreads the cost of the program out over eight months, we now offer financial aid to anyone who meets the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) income eligibility guidelines for reduced school meals. Anyone who qualifies for financial aid will receive a discount on the cost of the American Board Plus+ Program.

To see if you qualify, call one of our Recruitment Specialists at 877-669-2228 or e-mail contact@abcte.org.

NOTE: You can still pay via the installment plan if you are eligible for financial aid.

The American Board will use the following steps to determine if you are eligible:

1. Find the size of your household in the first column of the chart below.

2. Follow the row across to the income level (before taxes).

3. If your income is at or below the level listed, you are eligible for financial aid. Our Recruitment Specialist will send you a Financial Aid form.

4. Submit your most recent paystub from all filers listed on the household’s IRS-1040 form and last year’s tax forms along with the Financial Aid form

If your income level is above the listed level, you do not qualify for financial aid but you may want to consider our installment plan.

Financial Aid is only available if payment is from a personal resource and is not eligible for third-party payments from organizations, companies or School Districts.

If you are interested in applying for Financial Aid, do not enroll online. We are not able to retroactively apply approvals on processed enrollments.

Please note that if you are enrolling via the Installment Plan form, do not attempt to complete payment on-line. Enrollments completed by payment in full online will not be eligible to transfer to the Installment Plan. Installment plan participants are not eligible for the Teach & Inspire Scholarship Program.
