Because many students who attend Relay expect to receive AmeriCorps education awards at the end of each academic year, Relay takes a portion of the tuition owed for each term of an academic year and makes it payable at the end of that academic year, when AmeriCorps awards are released to students. This is done so that students are able to focus on their teaching and coursework without worrying about making large out of pocket payments each semester. Once we are notified by AmeriCorps that your award has been released (typically in mid to late July), we will send you an email with instructions on how to release your award to Relay and cover your deferred tuition charges.
Students who exit from the program during the academic year for any reason are responsible for paying any remaining tuition balance, including any tuition balance that has been deferred, immediately upon exiting or taking a leave of absence from the program.
To see your deferred tuition, please visit Minerva by logging into the payment portal via login.relay.edu. You will then select 'Minerva,' followed by 'Finance,' followed by 'My Account Balances.' Your deferred tuition is in the box below the main statement balances.
