Workshop tuition is $700 which includes workshop instruction by a College Board-endorsed consultant, all College Board instructional materials, lunch in the dining hall, a snack each day, and parking.
AP* Biology and AP* Studio Arts carry an additional $25 laboratory fee for a total of $725.
Lodging is not included in the tuition. There is no on-campus housing available; rather, we have arranged for a conference rate at the nearby Days Inn Hotel University Avenue. Days Inn is one of the best values around. Guests receive a complimentary Continental breakfast and free wi-fi. They also graciously provide shuttle transport between the hotel and the Augsburg campus. Be sure to request a spot on the shuttle upon check-in. AP*Participants are responsible for making their own lodging arrangements. Those wishing to stay at the Days Inn should contact them directly at 1(800)225-3297. Be sure to mention that you are with “Augsburg College Advanced Placement.” The rate is $85/night + tax. Hurry! Rooms are limited and must be reserved by May 16, 2014 to be eligible for the $85/night rate.
Minnesota Teacher Scholarships
Minnesota teachers who are teaching or plan to teach and AP* course are eligible for a scholarship from the state. This year, the Minnesota Department of Education expects to reimburse school districts at least $500 for tuition for each teacher attending an Advanced Placement* Summer Institute. Depending upon the total number of enrollments for this summer, MDE may be able to reimburse school districts up to the full cost of the Institute; unfortunately, that decision will not be made until after all summer institutes have closed.
Please contact Jacqui McKenzie, Minnesota Department of Education at 651-582-8852 for application and funding information.
Please note: this form should be submitted directly to the MN Department of Education along with a copy of your registration form. Registrations must be pre-paid, MDE will reimburse schools/districts upon receipt of participation after the commencement of the Institute.
AP* Summer Institute participants have the option to earn one (1) graduate credit at no additional cost. All participants must complete the “Continuing Education Registration” form that will be distributed upon check-in.
For those participants who choose to pursue graduate credit, graduate credit will be granted on a 4-point scale to participants who both participate full-time in their respective workshop AND complete a final project as determined and graded by the workshop consultant.
Participants who do not choose to pursue graduate credit, and who complete all workshop requirements will receive a certificate of attendance documenting 30 hours instruction. Registration for the AP* Summer Institute implies agreement to attend all class sessions for the entire meeting time. For participants unable to attend all contact hours, a letter will be prepared that verifies the number of hours attended in lieu of the official certificate.
