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.
Workshop tuition includes instruction by a College Board-endorsed consultant, all College Board instructional materials, and OPTIONAL GRADUATE CREDIT. Our in-person workshops also include lunch.

Minnesota Teacher Scholarships
Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) Reimbursement
Minnesota teachers who are teaching or plan to teach an AP course are eligible for a scholarship from the state of Minnesota. For 2023, school districts will be reimbursed $665 per teacher for the workshop tuition.
School districts will be reimbursed directly from MDE after the institute. Instructions on how to invoice MDE will be available on MDE’s AP page and shared with schools on a later date.
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.
- Complete the “Continuing Education Registration” form that will be emailed during the second day of class.
- Participate full-time in your respective workshop
- 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 an 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.
If you need to cancel your registration, you must do so in writing by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address you used to register. Any cancellation received within 21 days of the start of the institute will result in a 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 canceled, all registrants will be given the opportunity to transfer to an open workshop or receive a full refund.
