What is Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA)?
TAA is a federally funded employment program that assists workers whose jobs have
been impacted by foreign imports. Edinboro offers several certificate programs, as
well as undergraduate and graduate degree programs that are approved for TAA funding.
For more information on TAA, visit the following site:
TAA benefits begin with the employer applying for participation in the program. You
should verify that your employer has been approved to participate in TAA by contacting
the CareerLink Office in your county.

TAA recipients are required to apply for federal and state aid by filling out the
Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The amount of your TAA award may be reduced by the amount of grants/scholarships
If you are accepted to Edinboro University, you should meet with the Transfer and
Adult Student Services Office immediately to complete a two-year plan of study. TAA students are required to be enrolled full-time during the fall and spring semesters
(at least 12 credits for undergraduate programs and at least 9 credits for graduate
programs), as well as during the summer.
After a two-year plan of study is created, a budget will be developed by our Bursar's
Office (based on your submitted plan of study) to cover your entire program, including
tuition, fees and books, and entered on the PA CareerLink website. The local PA CareerLink
counselor will review this information and notify Harrisburg. Upon approval, Edinboro
University is then authorized to bill PA CareerLink for the successful completion
of an academic term. Billing, therefore, will not be done until the end of the term.
Students who withdraw from courses, receive incompletes, or fail must contact the
PA CareerLink counselor to determine the impact on their funding.
You can charge your textbooks at the Campus Bookstore to your TAA account by presenting
your student ID card at the register.
Verification of attendance is required for TAA students. Students need to visit the
Office of Transfer and Adult Student Services each week that school is in session
to sign the attendance logbook.
