AP Costs

Workshop Tuition

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. Lodging is not included in tuition, and is the responsibility of teacher to secure on his/her own.

AP* Biology and AP* Studio Arts carry an additional $25 laboratory fee for a total of $725.

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 and $150 or more for room and board 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 Note: Scholarship applications must be sent directly to the MN Department of Education and not to Augsburg College. Augsburg cannot accept responsibility for forwarding applications if received.

Lodging

Lodging is not included in the tuition. There is no on-campus housing available; rather, we have arranged for a conference rate at a nearby hotel. Detailed information will follow soon.

Graduate Credit

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.
