Local or In-State Fee Explanation - Student Teaching Semester
Bozeman – Belgrade – Three Forks – Manhattan - Livingston ( ≤ 50mi. / 80km. radius from Bozeman):
Your fees remain the same, so your tuition bill will be the same as other semesters.
Outside the Bozeman area ( ≥ 50mi. / 80km radius from Bozeman), but you are a current
resident of Montana:
Teacher candidates outside the 50 mile radius of Bozeman will have some fees* waived on their tuition bill which will equal or surpass the $125.00 charge on their tuition bill that goes toward paying a field supervisor. Montana Field Supervisors are paid $250.00, $125.00 of which is paid by you when you pay your tuition and the remaining $125.00 is paid by the Dean’s Office.
University, Field Supervisor and Cooperating Teacher FeesSTUDENT TEACHING OUTSIDE THE STATE OF MONTANA:
If you plan on student teaching out-of-state you will most likely pay more than the $250.00 paid to a University & Field Supervisor in the state of Montana. The teacher candidate is responsible for payment of the amount over and above the $250.00 of which $125.00 is included on the tuition bill paid by the teacher candidate plus $125.00 paid by the Education Department.
In some states, Cooperating Teachers are paid more than the $250.00 paid to Montana cooperating teachers. Once again the teacher candidate is responsible for the amount over and above the $250.00 which is paid by the Education Department.
The Field Placement Office will bill the teacher candidate for the amount above $250.00 that the University & Field Supervisor charges for his or her services. After receiving the bill, the teacher candidate will send a check or money order, made out to MSU-Bozeman, to:
Field Placement & Licensure
PO Box 172880, 247 Reid Hall
Montana State University-Bozeman
Bozeman, MT 59717-2880
A check will be mailed to the cooperating teacher as soon as the Field Placement Office receives a final grade for the teacher candidate.
The following fee waivers will be made:
- Health fee: This fee is not your insurance fee!
You will still need to pay your insurance fee unless you had it waived because you have medical insurance through another source.
- Dental fee
- Activity fee
- Athletic fee
- Bus fee
