Saginaw Valley State University’s (SVSU) School/University Partnership Office offers graduate course tuition scholarships to SVSU authorized Public School Academy teachers enrolled in a College of Education program. Fifty percent of tuition and mandatory fees for 15 credits per year is available (Fall - Summer). Coursework may be completed at any SVSU campus including University Center in Saginaw and Macomb. In addition, on-line and Distant Learning courses qualify for tuition assistance as well.


1. Interested teachers not already active students at SVSU must first complete an SVSU student application on-line at

2. Once the teacher has registered and/or is an active SVSU student, they must then email Dawn Gillespie (, Administrative Assistant in the School/University Partnership Office, with the following information:



Public School Academy Name:

Semester Class is Taken:

Course Number:

Campus Location:

The above information should be submitted before tuition payment due dates established by the University (see Important Dates). Otherwise, students will have to pay entire tuition balance upon registration and the 50% reimbursement for the class will come at a later date, usually several weeks into the semester. Late registration fees are the student’s responsibility.

3. Once steps 1 and 2 have been completed, a Scholarship Authorization Form will be generated by the School/University Partnership Office and will be submitted to the Financial Aid Office. Verification will be sent by email that your scholarship is in process.
