Alternative Teaching Certification Financing

Become A Teacher

Are you interested in becoming a teacher? Our Alternative Teaching Certification Financing allows you to finance the full cost of your program, at a low interest rate and monthly payment. Plus, financing comes with membership to Gulf Coast Educators FCU. Check out all the details below.

Program Cost & Financing – The program cost is dependent on which Alternative Teaching Program provider you choose. Once you are approved for financing, the full cost of your program will be sent directly to your program provider. The amount will be financed at 0% APR* for the first 6 months, and then converted to 8.99% APR* after that, with the option of a discount available.

A physical credit card will be mailed to you once your financing has been finalized. Your limit is the amount of your program cost. As you pay down your financing, more credit will be available, which you may use at your discretion. Any transactions made using this credit card will have a variable rate dependent on your credit score.

Discount – You may receive a discount of 1.00% off your APR* by enrolling in direct deposit. We can assist you with switching over your direct deposit with our online switch kit.
