Teachers requesting these grants must include with their registration form a statement from their principal or supervisor indicating that they are expected to be teaching in the school during the next academic year
At Manhattan College, participants have the opportunity to take the AP course for graduate credit.
If a participant chooses to take the course for graduate credit, they will receive three (3) graduate credits in education, a transcript after the course is completed, and a certificate upon completion of the course denoting 45 hours of Professional Development. Please be aware that consultants generally give projects to be completed after the week of the course to receive graduate credit for the course.
If a participant chooses to take the course and not receive graduate credit, we call this audit. Upon completion of the course, the participant will receive a certificate denoting 37.5 hours of Professional Development. There is no extra project and no transcript.
Participants will be asked if they are taking the course for credit or audit the week of the course. If your employer is paying for the course, please check with them before you make your decision.
