Abstract: Institutions of higher education, as well as the U.S. Department of Education, use the TCLI Directory to assist students in determining if the schools they may teach at upon completing their degrees meet the qualifications for receiving the loan cancellations or receiving the TEACH Grant as grant funds. The purpose of the TCLI Directory is to provide a single location for the public to find the list of schools and educational service agencies that are reported. By teaching at one of these schools, recipients of Federal Perkins Loans and Direct Loans may qualify for loan cancellation as provided under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. Additionally teaching at one of these schools is a requirement for the TEACH Grant program.
