Arizona's Troops to Educators Program (TTE) is a free service to help active-duty, their spouse, veterans, and reservists navigate the certification process to begin a new career in education for grades K-12. Eligible participants can receive educational counseling, certification recommendation, and employment referral assistance.
Eligibility requirements: Honorable service, minimum 4 years active-duty, or 6 years reserve service.
Currently, there are no financial incentives available for this program. Arizona does offer financial assistance through the Arizona Teachers Academy, a zero to low-cost option for individuals interested in entering the teaching profession here in the state. Requirements and offerings vary by each institution of higher education.
