Deaf/Hard of Hearing (Graduate Licensure)


The University offers a Deaf/Hard of Hearing Licensure Program designed to prepare teachers to work with students who are deaf or hard of hearing. The program is made possible by the Promoting Achievement for Students with Sensory Loss (PASS) grant which is funded by the Indiana Department of Education through the Blumberg Center.

Note: This program is offered via online learning.

Required Courses

In addition, the Deaf/Hard of Hearing Licensure Program is approved by the Indiana State Board of Education.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

Graduate students may be eligible for federal student loans if they are admitted into graduate degrees (or first-time teacher certification programs) and meet other eligibility requirements. Certificate programs are not eligible for financial aid. Private alternative loans can help students pay college expenses that may not be covered by federal loan programs or other financial aid. For more information, visit financial aid.

In addition, students may be eligible for payment plans and veterans benefits. On-campus degree-seeking students may be eligible for special scholarships for residents of Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, and the Midwest Consortium.
