To further support educators, the University also has launched a new partnership with DonorsChoose.org to help teachers fund college and career preparation activities for students. AIU's "Double Your Impact" match offer with DonorsChoose.org supports qualifying projects in 6 th - 12 th-grade public school classrooms where the needs are greatest. When designated projects reach 50 percent of their funding goal, AIU matches the total contribution, up to a total of $35,000. In the past 15 years, DonorsChoose.org has funded more than 660,000 projects to reach nearly 17 million students from coast to coast."We are delighted to partner with AIU to support college and career prep classroom projects, said Kristina Joye Lyles, Partnership Manager at DonorsChoose.org. "This generous contribution to teachers will ensure that students will receive the resources they need to excel beyond the classroom." Designed by teachers for teachers, AIU's M.Ed. programs in elementary and secondary education are among the few M.Ed. programs to integrate adaptive learning throughout the entire curriculum, provide a more personal and efficient learning experience through the university's proprietary adaptive learning technology, intelli path™. 2 "With our TEAC-accredited M.Ed. programs, teachers can complete the degree they need to take their career to the next level while juggling the demands of their own students and their busy lives outside of the classroom," said Dr. Jones.

AIU's elementary and secondary education online M.Ed. programs are post-licensure programs and thus require a current teaching licensure upon matriculation. The $15,000 tuition excludes fees and assumes a student will be continuously enrolled, and satisfactorily completes all program requirements for graduation. The tuition cost will increase due to academic failure of courses and or withdrawals and drops. AIU reserves the right to make changes at any time to the amount of tuition and fees, such as a technology and graduation fee as set forth in the Enrollment Agreement and University Catalog. The tuition costs at other institutions may vary based on tuition and fee policies, delivery modality, online, ground, or hybrids and the student's state of residence.
