Illinois Teachers

If you already have a teaching license in the State of Illinois, please select the topic you're interested in learning more about:

Tuition Waivers

NIU awards instructional waivers to the districts in which cooperating teachers are employed. Waivers can be applied to the cost of tuition at NIU. Depending on your district's waiver allocation policies, you may be eligible for a waiver. Ask your district office about their waiver policies.

Non-Illinois Teachers

Are you a professional with a teaching license outside of Illinois? We're happy to connect you with resources.
