Reimbursement FAQs

Does T.E.A.C.H. pay for my gas?

Every semester a student attends class(es) she/he will receive a travel stipend for $100, regardless of mileage that was driven.  Gas receipts are not required for the reimbursement. 

When can a T.E.A.C.H. Scholarship Counselor start processing reimbursements?

A T.E.A.C.H. Counselor can start processing reimbursements as early as two weeks after classes start, but may wait to receive the bill from the college/university to ensure accuracy of the cost of tuition.

How long will it take for me to receive my check or invoice?

After the reimbursement has been processed, it will typically take six to eight weeks to receive the check.  Invoices are printed every 60 days.

Why does the reimbursement process take so long?

To ensure accuracy during our reimbursement process, several authorizations are included to ensure T.E.A.C.H. is being a good steward of our grant money.  After we process the reimbursement, it undergoes many rigorous in-house approvals.  Then, it is sent to our accounting firm who prints the checks.  The checks are then brought back to our office and prepared for a speedy delivery to our recipients.

Why haven’t I received my reimbursement yet?

One or more of the following reasons could delay your reimbursement:  T.E.A.C.H. has not received a Reimbursement Claim Form B, tuition statement, book receipt, or your counselor is waiting for the college/university bill.
