Assumption Program of Loans for Education (APLE)

The Assumption Program of Loans for Education (APLE) is a competitive teacher incentive program designed to encourage outstanding students, district interns, and currently credentialed teachers to seek and teach in specified K-12 teaching positions in designated California public schools.

The current State Budget Act does not authorize any new APLE allocations (applications) for this year. This change also impacts the District Interns Program and the Credentialed Teachers Program.

The California Student Aid Commission (Commission) will continue to process paperwork and payments for existing APLE participants (2011-12 academic year and prior), including participants in the APLE District Interns Program and APLE Credentialed Teachers Program.
