AP Summer Institute

Welcome to Augsburg University’s Advanced Placement Summer Institute (APSI)! 

APSI’s are designed to support all aspects of AP courses, encompassing AP methodology, class assignments and exams, course curriculum, as well as offering strategies for AP course instruction. Each workshop is led by an endorsed College Board consultant. Many of our consultants are the best in their field with leadership experience at the readings and/or contributions of content for the different AP subjects. We are offering two virtual APSI’s and one in-person APSI on Augsburg’s Minneapolis campus!

  • Our ONLINE APSI’s use Moodle as our Learning Management System (LMS). For the synchronous portions of the workshop, we’ll use Zoom. The consultants are designing both large and small group sessions using this platform while also utilizing Moodle as a supplement.
  • Our IN-PERSON APSI will be held over 4-days (includes lunches) on Augsburg’s Minneapolis campus and allows educators from around the region to come together to share best practices, strategies and tips.

Scholarships

Minnesota Teacher Scholarships

Minnesota teachers planning to teach an AP* course are eligible for a scholarship from the state. This year, the Minnesota Department of Education expects to reimburse school districts $600 for tuition and up to $150 for room and board per teacher. Depending upon the number of enrollments, 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.

College Board Scholarships

The College Board also offers three different scholarships *Application deadlines apply.

GRADUATE CREDIT and CEU’s

Augsburg offers an optional one (1) graduate credit at no additional cost. Here’s how it works.

  1. Complete the “Continuing Education Registration” form that will be emailed during the second day of class.
  2. Participate full-time in your respective workshop
  3. Complete a final project as determined and graded by the workshop consultant using an A-F scale.

Certificates of Attendance will be issued documenting 30 hours of instruction to everyone who completes all workshop requirements for a total of 3.0 CEU’s. Registration for the AP Summer institute implies agreement to attend all class sessions for the entire meeting time. However, participants who do not attend all contact hours will receive a certificate that reflects the adjusted number of hours attended.

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel your registration, you must do so in writing by emailing  apsi@augsburg.edu from the email address you used to register for the institute. Any cancellation received within 21 days of the start of the institute or during the institute will result in a full forfeiture of all tuition and fees.

If insufficient enrollment or instructor illness requires us to reschedule a workshop, all registrants will be notified of any changes in the published information. If a workshop is cancelled, all registrants will be given the opportunity to transfer to an open workshop or receive a full refund.
