As a recipient of a TEACH Grant, you must teach for at least
four (4) academic years within eight (8) calendar years of completing
the program of study for which you received a TEACH Grant.
IMPORTANT: If you fail to complete this service
obligation, all amounts of TEACH Grants that you received will
be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. You
must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education.
You will be charged interest from the date the grant(s) was
disbursed. Note: TEACH Grant recipients will be given a 6-month
grace period prior to entering repayment if a TEACH Grant is
converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan.
