The Teaching Incentive Loan Program (TIL) is state funded and jointly administered by the State Board of Education and the State Board of Regents. The program consists of a waiver (of tuition and fees at Utah public institutions, and $995 per semester at Utah private institutions) to be used for a period not to exceed eight (8) semesters. TIL recipients will be required to complete an educator preparation program and teach in Utah public schools for a term equal to the number of years for which the loan was received. To qualify for a Utah Educator License, a recipient must receive a cleared background/fingerprint check at the time of licensing AND have a visa or citizenship status that will allow the recipient to be employed in the United States. If a recipient does not complete the degree or decides not to repay through teaching in a Utah public school, that recipient will be required to repay all TIL monies received.
