One of the goals of the ELMS Project is focused on preparing pre-service teachers to be eligible for the North Carolina ESL Add-On Licensure. The ELMS Project offers in-state tuition reimbursement to pre-service teachers who complete the six courses required for this add-on licensure. All courses have a completely online option.
The ELMS Project covers the cost of in-state tuition and fees for six courses within the Add-On Licensure Program for pre-service teachers. To qualify for tuition reimbursement, participants must sign an agreement with the ELMS Project to participate in professional development research for the life of the grant (through 2017) and plan to teach K-12 in North Carolina.
