Teacher Pledge: Undergraduate Programs

Are you ready to become a teacher? You can learn about UW–Madison’s teacher certification programs and steps to getting certified on our “Become a Teacher” page. Connect with an advisor to plan a pathway that matches your goals and interests.

When you are ready to become a teacher, the Teacher Pledge program is here to provide financial aid. Pledge to work at a Wisconsin PK-12 school for three to four years after graduation, and we will provide financial support equal to the equivalent of in-state tuition and fees, testing, and licensing costs during your time enrolled in a teacher education program.

"I always wanted to teach in Wisconsin, but this (Teacher Pledge) solidified it for me while taking a significant weight off of my shoulders after choosing to do a fifth year here at UW."
