Educator Preparation Program

Anticipated Fees for Teacher Certification

Students preparing for Teacher Certification can anticipate certain fees and expenses. The Educator Preparation Program tries to minimize these added expenses when at all possible.The following are examples of typical costs that would be similar at any institution offering teacher preparation:

Standard for Success subscription at $50 per semester
This required for all admitted candidates as well as those who are enrolled in an EDU course. Students taking an EDU course as an elective that do not intend to pursue teacher certification may request a waiver (see the ABOUT tab) 

Safe Hiring Solutions Background Check
Students will be required purchase the background check once per academic year if they are enrolled in a course with a Clinical Fieldwork Experience. Students should use the special link for Hanover College. Students do have the option of having this run in the Student Services Office and assessed to their student accounts. (see the ABOUT tab)

ETS Praxis Core Exam may be needed for Program admission. Please refer to the APPLYING tab for more information regarding the possible need for the ETS Praxis exam to meet admission requirements. (see the Prospective Teacher Candidates tab)

Course Fees for 300 and 400 Level Courses
Methods and student teaching assignments include a fee to cover the costs of our clinical educators in the K-12 schools. Please refer to the Hanover College Course Catalog for more information. This is assessed to the student account by the Business Office as students enroll in these courses.

Though not required for certification or graduation, Education students should be aware that there are licensing examinations to qualify for licensing as well as the fee for Indiana and/or other state licensing. The amount varies by state, and many states require initial licensing in the state where teacher preparation was completed.For additional information, please refer to the Educator Licensing tab as well as our licensing advisors.
