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 Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education tuition/credit rates. The chart below provides more information on the status of our agreements with Pennsylvania based higher education institutions, along with the type(s) of degrees that T.E.A.C.H. can fund at those institutions.  Please note that some higher education institutions may offer other early childhood degrees or credentials that are not funded 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 Child Development Associate (CDA) and Director Credentials from the Rising STARS Tuition Assistance Program
