Tk20 Fee

Simply put, Tk20 is an online assessment program used by the College of Education to provide evidence to our accrediting body that teacher candidates have mastered state and professional standards for the profession.

Undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the identified professional education programs are required to subscribe to Tk20.  The fee is $100 and is generally, but not always, included in the student's first tuition bill after admission to the College.  In some cases, undergraduate students enrolled in certain pre-admission courses may be required to purchase Tk20 out of pocket -- in which case, it would be removed from their tuition bill.
