Grants to Feeder Schools
Manhattan College awards a $300 remission grant to any current or prospective teacher 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.
As an international student, you will be required to obtain an F-1 student visa in order to attend. Once payment has been made, Manhattan College will provide the necessary I-20 form that you will take to the American Embassy or Consulate to apply for the F-1 visa.
Credit vs. Audit
You have the opportunity to take the AP course for graduate credit at no additional cost, a great benefit of our Institute.
If you choose to take the course for graduate credit, you 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. They will assign letter grades by the end of the month and transcripts will be posted within the next few weeks.
If you choose to audit the course, you will receive a certificate denoting 37.5 hours of Professional Development. There is no extra project and no transcript.
You will be asked if you plan to take the course for credit or audit at registration, and will need to confirm this during the week of the course. If your employer is paying for the course, please check with them before you make your decision.
