Program Information


Our AP Summer Institute offers top-tier training in the instruction of Advanced Placement classes just a subway ride away from the excitement of Manhattan. We provide a week of professional education and rejuvenation to our participants, enriched by fun social events with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and the proximity of the world-class museums, theatres, and other cultural landmarks of New York City. This summer marks our 38th 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 2020-21 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.

Manhattan College, Riverdale, New York

Located in the northwestern corner of New York City — a 30-minute subway ride from midtown Manhattan— Riverdale is a suburban residential section of the Bronx, north of Manhattan but south of Yonkers, a few blocks east of the Hudson River.

Public transportation: The College is one block west of Broadway at 242nd Street, where you can catch the #1 subway train into Manhattan.

Vehicles: Manhattan College is only a few blocks from both the Henry Hudson Parkway and I-87.

Air Travel: Easy transportation is available from all New York metropolitan airports. La Guardia Airport and Westchester County Airport are the closest, both about 25 minutes by taxi.

Non-Payment Penalties

Pay your tuition and fees by the published deadline (July 27th) 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. Accounts not paid in full may be referred to a collection agency, which can result in additional collection and/or legal costs. 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.

Cancellation Policy

Cancelations before the first class will receive a full refund. If you cancel before the second class (August 4th), you will receive an 80% refund. If you cancel after August 4th, 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.

International Students

As an international student, you will be required to obtain a visa in order to attend. If you are auditing the course, you should obtain a tourist visa. If you are taking the course for credit, you must procure a F-1 student visa. 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. Please note: once you obtain the correct visa, you may NOT switch your registration status from credit to audit or vice versa.

Credit vs. Audit

You have the opportunity to take the AP course for graduate credit at an additional cost of $605, 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 28th; 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.
