Colleges & Universities

PACCA negotiates tuition rates and credit costs with two- and four-year public and private institutions of higher education (IHE) based on public community college and the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education tuition/credit rates. The chart below provides more information on the status of our agreements with Pennsylvania's higher education institutions, along with the type(s) of degrees/credentials that T.E.A.C.H. can cover at those institutions.  Please note that some higher education institutions may offer other early childhood degrees or credentials that are not covered by T.E.A.C.H. at this time.   

Colleges and universities that have provided additional information about their programs & curricula are linked to an on-line PDF profile that can be downloaded.  To inquire about a particular institution, contact a Scholarship Counselor at (717) 657-9000.

Funding is available for standalone CDA and Director Credentials from the Rising STARS Tuition Assistance Program
