If a student does not complete the service obligation, any TEACH Grant funds received will be converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan. Students must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education, with interest charged from the date the TEACH Grant was disbursed.

In order to receive a TEACH Grant, applying students must sign the Agreement to Serve.
