First of all, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum. Please move it if it is.
My fiance and I are college students. Late in his college career, he felt the calling to become a high school teacher. Unfortunately, he was already a junior, and if he took on an education major at that point, he would graduate late, so he decided it would be more practical to continue with his undergraduate degree in Italian and pursue a M.Ed. after he graduates. He will be a senior in the fall, so he is starting to look at graduate schools.
Unfortunately, we're both flat broke, so paying for graduate school will be very hard, especially because he is already in a lot of debt from his undergrad (my father is helping me with tuition so I won't have nearly as much). We've already had to change the date for the wedding from 2013 to 2014 just because it wouldn't be possible for us to be financially independent in 2013. It really saddens us that he might have to put off grad school and his ideal career because of money issues.
But then we heard about the University Consortium for Catholic Education programs, which allow you to earn a graduate degree in education while giving you teaching experience in inner-city Catholic schools. Such a program sounds perfect for him, especially because they accept people without undergraduate degrees in education and most of them waive tuition and offer a modest stipend. The problem is that most of the programs we've looked at (Boston College, Providence College, etc.) explicitly state that they don't accept married students. The only one we have found so far that says it does is Seton Hall University, but they don't waive tuition.
Does anyone know if there are other UCCE programs that accept married students, or if there are any similar programs out there? These programs sound very appealing to my fiance and they seem like the best option for us financially, but we really don't want to put off getting married any longer than we have to!
