How do I register and secure my spot?
Registration is a two-step process. You must register first with through the College Board, at this link.
After you finish the College Board registration for our Institute, you will be directed to our registration website, where you will have to re-enter some information and give some additional details. YOU MUST COMPLETE BOTH REGISTRATIONS IN ORDER TO SECURE YOUR SPOT IN THE PROGRAM.
What will I need to take the course? How will I join the class online?
The courses will be led by our award-winning consultants remotely, using Moodle (Manhattan College's learning management system), and Google Meet for live conferencing. Particpants will only need an internet-connected device (computer, laptop, tablet, eg), and The College Board will mail the relevant 2021 Course and Exam Description binder to each participant in advance of the workshop. Detailed instructions and guidelines for taking the course remotely will also be sent to participants in advance of the first session.
Can a participant only attend part of the week? Will there be a price difference?
No, the entire workshop must be attended in order to receive graduate credit or audit certification.
What is the difference between taking a course for audit or credit?
At Manhattan College, participants have the opportunity to take the AP course for graduate credit at an additional cost of $600. If a participant chooses to take the course for credit, he or she 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. During the week of the Institute, consultants will assign separate projects to be completed after the week of the course to receive graduate credit for the course. Consultants will then assign letter grades to those participants taking the class for credit, which will be due to the Director by August 26th; transcripts will be posted within the next few weeks.
If a participant chooses to take the course and not receive graduate credit, we call this an 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 need to decide whether to take the course for credit or audit at registration. If your employer is paying for the course, please check with them before you make your decision.
How can I switch my registration from credit to audit or vice versa? How late can I register?
