Our experience with AmeriCorps alumni at SPEA has been outstanding.
Your experiences enhance the classroom and academic environment.
- You possess a sense of self-discipline that comes from coping with challenging positions in the field, and having to make do with limited resources.
- You possess maturity that such experiences bring.
- Our AmeriCorps alums have always had a significant impact on the social and academic life of the school.
Benefits to AmeriCorps alumni
You qualify for a reduction of 3 credit hours per year of service (up to a maximum of 6 credits—this amounts to cost saving of more than $3,500 benefit per year of service, depending on residency). Your AmeriCorps service also satisfies the experiential requirement for an MPA or MSES degree.
NOTE: AmeriCorps alumni who are external dual degree students will not receive the 6 credit hour waiver, as you must take at least 36 hours of SPEA coursework to obtain a professional degree.
As an AmeriCorps alum, you will also receive a graduate school application fee waiver from Indiana University, which is a savings of $55.
