What To Expect
Initial and Subsequent Counseling
TEACH Grant Initial and Subsequent Counseling will explain the TEACH Grant Program and the TEACH Grant service obligation you agree to meet as a condition for receiving a TEACH Grant.
You must complete TEACH Grant counseling each year that you receive a TEACH Grant before you sign an Agreement to Serve (ATS) for that year.
TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve
You must complete TEACH Grant Initial and Subsequent Counseling (TEACH Grant counseling) each year that you receive a TEACH Grant before you sign an Agreement to Serve (ATS) for that year.
To complete the counseling online log in by clicking on "My TEACH Grant" in the left hand navigation bar. You will be taken to the My TEACH Grant Log In page and will be required to use your FSA ID to log in.
If you have not completed your TEACH Grant counseling, you must complete TEACH Grant counseling before you can complete your ATS. Once you log in, click on Complete NEW COUNSELING to start your counseling session. You may complete both your TEACH Grant counseling and your ATS in the same session.
If you have previously completed your TEACH Grant counseling session, you will not be required to do so again. Once you log in, click on Complete NEW ATS.
We estimate that it will take 30 minutes to complete your ATS.
You will complete your ATS in the following four steps:
Step 1 - School Info
The following information will be carried forward from the most recent year for which you have completed TEACH counseling:

Before you begin the ATS, you will be asked to verify this information.
Step 2 - Student Info
You will provide your contact information and two references with different U.S. addresses who have known you for at least three years.
Step 3 - Review Draft
- Confirm that you have read your ATS and that you agree to all of the terms and conditions explained in the ATS.
- Sign your ATS.
Step 4 - Submit ATS
You will review your signed ATS and correct any incorrect information before submitting your signed ATS.
