School of Education Offering Tuition Discounts for Catholic Teachers, Administrators

The Duquesne University School of Education is now offering a 60-percent tuition discount to full-time lay teachers and school administrators in Roman Catholic schools-pre-K through high school-in the Pittsburgh, Greensburg and Altoona-Johnstown dioceses.

This tuition discount opportunity covers more than 30 academic programs, including bachelors, masters, certifications and certificate programs.

"We are delighted to offer this expanded discount to lay teachers and administrators," said Dr. Cindy Walker, dean of the School of Education. "We appreciate the perspective that these professionals bring to the classroom. Advancing their education can impact their careers and ultimately, their students."

"For our dedicated Catholic school lay administrators and teachers to be able to earn these credits from such a highly regarded program in such a distinguished Catholic university is a tremendous opportunity," said Dr. Michael Latusek, superintendent of Catholic schools at the Diocese of Pittsburgh. "We have been blessed to be able to collaborate with the School of Education and I know our teachers will be eager to participate."

Applications are now being accepted for the 2018-2019 academic year. Prospective students can learn more about the discount and eligibility requirements by visiting or by calling 412.396.6093.
