School Partnership Program

As a teacher in the school partnership program, you'll experience big savings – both in tuition and in steps to complete the admission process!

Baldwin Wallace University has formed partnerships with 100 area school districts to offer teachers in these districts special enrollment benefits. These benefits are available to Ohio-licensed teachers, substitute teachers and administrators who work full time in a partner school district.

If you would like to learn more about how your school may become a partner in the school partnership program, contact Dr. Susan Finelli-Genovese at or (440) 826-8064.

Tuition Discounts

Tuition discounts for MAEd degrees, as well as graduate courses leading to licensure and endorsement programs, make costs comparable to those at state institutions.
