Program Tuition Additional Fees

The US Department of Education has determined that the San Joaquin County Office of Education (dba Teachers College of San Joaquin) satisfies the definition of an eligible institution for the purpose of granting to regular students at the Institution an in-school deferment of repayment of Federal Family Education Program Loans and Federal Direct Student Loans.

Although candidates attending the Teachers College of San Joaquin are not eligible at this time to apply for Federal Student Aid to pay for their tuition, candidates may qualify to take advantage of the American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning tax credits. Eligible candidates will be issued a 1098T showing the amount of tuition paid during the January-December 2018 academic year. It is your responsibility to check with your tax advisor regarding eligible tax credits.

If you have taken federal loans prior to entering Teachers College of San Joaquin, you may qualify for deferment of those loans while enrolled at TCSJ.

To defer the payment of your loans, it is best to confirm with each of your lenders the process through which the deferment will take place. It may be that you do not have to submit any paperwork to defer your loan. This is true if your particular lender participates in the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). NSLDS is a database that receives enrollment information from university registrars at participating schools (enrollment status can also be self reported by logging into the NSLDS student access website to inform NSLDS of their enrollment status).

Lenders are allowed to download enrollment information directly from this clearinghouse. They can then match the data they download with their borrower records, thereby verifying whether a student/borrower is enrolled in a full-time program. If the student meets the enrollment requirement for deferment, the student is automatically deferred without any necessary paper documentation. Candidates who are auditing classes are not subject to the same academic requirements, therefore students who are auditing a class are not eligible for in-school deferments.

If your school or lender does not use the services of NSLDS, then you must obtain a paper deferment form from each lender and submit it to the TCSJ Admissions Department. A TCSJ Admissions Department designee will verify that you are enrolled in a full-time program and will forward your deferment form to the lender.

It is your responsibility to follow up with your lenders to be sure that your deferment has been approved and received by the lender in order to avoid a negative impact on your credit by missing monthly loan payments.

Each lender has their own policy on how often they will verify your enrollment status, therefore, you will need to ask your lender if you need to submit a deferment form each semester while enrolled, or once at the beginning of each academic year. Students who are denied a supplemental loan are often denied because they did not file for deferment. The lender does not know that you want to defer payments on your loans unless you inform them by submitting either an electronic or paper deferment form.

Probation - See Academic Performance, Progress and/or Conduct and Disposition: Probation Policy at

Program Withdrawal - All TCSJ students are expected to make adequate progress towards completion of their program. Program withdrawals in IMPACT, Residency@TCSJ, Teaching and Administrator Induction are considered when there are extenuating circumstances and there is an agreement between the program and the student. When applicable, employers will also be consulted.
A student who voluntarily withdraws from their scheduled program, is required to complete a Program Withdrawal Form, and will have the balance of the tuition costs associated with their program recalculated at the current tuition rate for the courses started and/or completed at the time of withdrawal.
While employed as an IMPACT University Intern, students must maintain concurrent enrollment in the two-year sequence of courses leading to program completion. IMPACT students who are no longer employed as the “Teacher of Record” will be considered withdrawn and their intern credential will be suspended.

Teachers College of San Joaquin is approved by California State Approving Agency for Veterans Education (CSAAVE) to enroll veterans and other eligible persons.

TCSJ will maintain a written record of the previous education and training (e.g. transcripts) of veterans and eligible persons. The record will clearly indicate if credit has been granted and candidates will be notified accordingly per 21.4253 (d)(3)
