Fulfilling the Agreement to Serve Requirements

Within 120 days of ceasing enrollment in the program for which TEACH Grant funds were received, students must notify the Direct Loan Servicing Center in writing that they are either employed as full-time teachers in accordance with the terms and conditions of the TEACH Grant service obligation or that they are not yet employed, but intend to meet the terms and conditions of the service obligation.

After ceasing enrollment, TEACH Grant Certification must be completed annually unless a subsequent TEACH Grant is received, the TEACH Grant is discharged, or a temporary suspension for completing the service obligation is granted. The form and instructions are located online and can be viewed annually. If this is not completed, all TEACH Grants funds received will convert to Direct Unsubsidized Loans with interest charged from the date of each initial disbursement.
