Our AP Summer Institute offers top-tier training in the instruction of Advanced Placement classes. This summer marks our 40th year of providing instruction in AP subjects, and we are proud to welcome back our talented consultants, all experts in their fields, year after year.
While professional development is not required to prepare for 2021-22 AP course updates and new classroom resources, the College Board encourages AP teachers to take advantage of the professional development offered by APSIs. Based on survey data, teachers across the country have found AP professional development to be extremely valuable.
Director: Dr. Bridget Chalk

Pay your tuition and fees by the published deadline (July 26th) to avoid late fees. A late penalty of 1% of the outstanding balance of any student account will be added at the end of each month until the account is settled.

Please note that participants are legally responsible for payment until it is received by Manhattan College, even if their school districts have agreed to fund their tuition.
Overdue tuition and fees may automatically terminate current enrollment and indefinitely suspend future enrollment. The College reserves the right to request prepayment before allowing registration for future terms. In addition, students with an outstanding obligation to the College will also be barred from online account access, receiving grade reports, parking decals and transcripts until all account balances have been paid.
Cancelations before the first class will receive a full refund. If you cancel before the second class (August 3rd), you will receive an 80% refund. If you cancel after August 3rd, there will be no refund. Room and board will not be prorated.
The College reserves the right to cancel any course in July because of insufficient enrollment or for any other reason.
Grants to Feeder Schools
Manhattan College awards a $300 remission grant to any current or prospective teacher taking the course for graduate credit from a secondary school that has sent ten or more students to Manhattan College in the preceding 10-year period. A list of these schools is available on the registration page.
Credit vs. Audit
You have the opportunity to take the AP course for graduate credit at an additional cost of $600, a great benefit of our Institute.
If a participant chooses to take the course for graduate 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 27th; transcripts will be posted within the next few weeks.
Participants auditing the course will receive a certificate denoting 37.5 hours of professional development. There is no extra project and no transcript.
Selection of audit or credit will take place upon registration. Participants should check with their employer before making a decision. Those wishing to switch their status during the week of the workshop must fill out the relevant paperwork by Tuesday, August 4th, and make a payment or request a refund.
