What does Commitment To Education (CTE) do?
Commitment To Education (CTE) has partnered with 3 (three) accredited universities in order to provide quality, degrees and programs, including recertification at discounted pricing. In other words, with the help of our three outstanding universities, we are able to save teachers a lot of money on their tuition costs.
What is the benefit of going through CTE?
CTE negotiates on your behalf in order to secure major savings for your educational advancement. Depending on the courses and/or programs, teachers will save from $400 to $9000 on their tuition costs.
Why would the universities want to offer their tuition at cheaper prices? Don’t they want to make more money?
The CTE partner universities are willing to offer a discount, and take a cut in profits in order to help the teacher community. We are honored to call them our partners in this important mission: Sierra Nevada College, Nova Southeastern University and Touro University Nevada.
I live outside of Nevada. Am I able to enroll in an online CTE program?
Absolutely. Since our University partners are regionally accredited we are able to enroll students from around the nation. All are welcome!
Can I take a discounted master’s degree program through CTE and then take my post-master’s programs through CTE as well?
Absolutely. This is the plan that most take while moving across the salary schedule. This is most convenient, quick and cost effective plan.
How do I register for the master’s program that I have selected?
It is a very easy process: simply click on “Sign Up Now” and fill out the CTE application. Once you have received an email confirmation that your application is complete you must fill out the college application. Click on the program which you have chosen and select the link to the application. Complete the university online application. DO NOT MAIL THIS APPLICATION TO THE CTE OFFICE.
I only need six credits to renew my license. Am I able to only take one or two classes instead of an entire program?
Sure. Simply click the ‘Licensure’ tab and choose a 6-credit bundle of courses. Once you have decided, simply click on the Sign Up Now button and fill out the simple application.
How can I pay for my master’s degree?
CTE is responsible to collect a portion of the program cost. CTE offers several convenient payment options: We accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover debit/credit cards. Your remaining tuition balance will be paid directly to the university using their convenient payment options or financial aid.
Is financial aid available with the university?
Financial aid is available with all of our universities for qualifying master’s programs. Financial aid does not apply for non-degree seeking programs, but there are several options for payment available. Find them on the program description pages.
When I signed up for my master’s program, I chose financial aid as my method of payment. How will this work?
It is simple; when you sign up for financial aid, you will contact the university and get the qualifying paperwork in order. Remember to get your financial aid approved well before the start of the first semester or the university may have to delay your start or make other arrangements with you in order to start the program on time.
What is the website address and phone number for the Nevada State Department of Education?
They can assist with endorsement and licensure information.
How do I pay off my balance in cash and stop my monthly/bi-weekly payments?
Contact us at 702-697-0006 option #6 and we will make your payment over the phone.
