Tk20 logoTk20 Question of the Week

When should I buy Tk20?

First of all, in most cases you will not need to use Tk20 until after the midpoint of the semester, so don't panic!

The Tk20 fee is typically included in tuition bills the first semester after admission to the College of Education.  It is clearly identified on the tuition bill as Tk20 Portfolio Fee and is a one-time-only purchase.  Please check your tuition bill before taking further action.
