Audio interview: Amy DiMeola (CITE and St. Rose Administration Graduate)

We talk about the internship that turned into her current administration position, new ways of involving parents in a school community, math and science learning on the elementary and middle school level, and more!

Cohort
This program is designed as a cohort, meaning each group of students takes all of their classes together. During and after the program, students benefit from the deeper connections formed during their program. Fellow students become a valuable network when you search for a job and, once you are an administrator, can be invaluable resources when you address challenges.

Tuition
The total cost of the program is $7,600 (plus $500 textbook fee). Each course is $950. The fee for each three-credit internship is $950. Tuition is due for each individual course on the first day of class, except for the first course, which must be prepaid upon acceptance into the program. This means that students do not pay for the complete program in advance nor do students pay by the semester.

Financial Aid
Financial Aid is available in this program. Generally, Financial Aid is in the form of student loans. For additional information, prospective students may contact the Office of Financial Aid at the College of Saint Rose campus in Albany, New York.
