Tuition & Scholarships

Shady Hill TTC participants (i.e., no master's degree through Lesley) pay only the TTC tuition. A master's degree is not required for initial license in Massachusetts. Completing the TTC program enables graduates to obtain initial licensure.

Please note that apprentices pay separate tuitions to Shady Hill and Lesley University. Lesley offers scholarships and/or loans to individuals who qualify. Use the links on this page for Lesley's financial aid office information and applications.
