International Students

The AP Institute is open to international participants as well. However, international participants are required to obtain an F-1 student visa in order to attend the AP Institute. Once payment has been made, Manhattan College will provide the necessary form I-20 which the participant will take to the American Embassy or Consulate to apply for the F-1 visa.

Graduate Credit vs. Audit

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.
