Scholarships & Other Funding

Midland University is proud to support students’ higher education by providing a multitude of funding opportunities for all kinds of situations. 

Graduate Education Scholarships

Thanks to the generous donor support of Midland University and the Master of Education in Leadership, Teaching, and Learning programs and endorsements, we are able to award financial support to 100% of admitted Master of Education in Leadership, Teaching, and Learning and endorsement students. All students who enroll in graduate education courses through the Master of Education in Leadership, Teaching, and Learning or endorsement programs receive a $50-per-credit graduate education scholarship upon their enrollment in the program.

Additionally, alumni of Midland University will receive a 10% discount on the cost of tuition after scholarships are applied.

TEACH Grant Program

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides grants of up to $4,000 per year to education students, up to a total of $16,000. These students must agree to serve as full‐time teachers in a high‐needs field for four years after their degree in a public or private elementary school, secondary school, or educational service agency that serves students from low‐income families.

Payment Schedule

Tuition and fees are due for the term on the first day of each term. The Midland student accounts office can also work with you directly to set up a payment plan. Enrolling in the program requires a nonrefundable $250 enrollment deposit, which holds your seat in the incoming class. This deposit is applied to the first-term balance.

All payments should be submitted by the first day of the term. If a student believes they are going to miss the deadline, we ask that they please contact us before the start of the term. 

Please, note: Any student account balance will preclude registration in future terms.

Federal Financial Aid

Financial aid from the federal government is available for almost all programs in the Center for Graduate and Professional Studies, as another way to make additional education an option for you as you consider joining us at Midland University.
