Each year you receive a TEACH grant, you must sign a TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve that is available at studentloans.gov
For each TEACH Grant-eligible program for which you received TEACH Grant funds, you must serve as a full-time teacher for a total of at least four academic years within eight calendar years after you completed or withdrew from the academic program for which you received the TEACH Grant.
You must perform the teaching service as a highly-qualified teacher at a low-income school. The term highly-qualified teacher is defined in section 9101 (23) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 or in section 602 (10) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
- You must comply with any other requirements that the Department of Education determines to be necessary.
If you receive a TEACH Grant but do not complete the required teaching service, as explained above, you will be required to repay the grants as a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, with interest charged from the date of each TEACH Grant disbursement.
