Advanced Placement Institutes at GSE

IMPORTANT NOTE:

The Graduate School of Education at Fordham University offers summer institutes VIRTUALLY for teachers of Advanced Placement® high school courses.

  • All institutes are taught by experienced teachers of AP® and are endorsed by the College Board®.
  • Three graduate credits are available per institute.

Register Online

In order to register, you will be required to create or log into your personal College Board® account via CVENT. Click on the links below to access and register for the dates that interest you. The registration links are organized by session dates. Registration can also be completed via College Board's AP® Central Professional Development Event Calendar.

Registration for Scholarship Recipients

All College Board® APSI scholarship recipients must register as scholarship recipients to be eligible to use scholarship funds. This is a payment option when participants register on CVENT.

Paperwork Process

The teacher taking the institute course(s) needs to confirm with the College Board® that they accept the scholarship and submit a completed W-9 form to the College Board® for taxes as they specified. College Board® will then issue a confirmation awardee email to the recipient. Otherwise, the scholarship is not awarded. Recipients should forward the email confirmation from the College Board® APSI Director Matthew A. Sawh, apinstitutes@fordham.edu, for processing within Fordham.

Summer Shipping Addresses for Course Materials*

It is the responsibility of the participant to email APInstitutes@fordham.edu with their name, name of their course(s) and preferred shipping address.

Reminder: Please send the address for the week(s) in which you will be participating. Specifically, if you will be away from your home during your institute week(s) in the summer, please provide that address. 

*PLEASE NOTE: Any registrant for a summer 2022 session should anticipate receiving e-materials just before their session starts.

    Cancellations which occur less than one month before the start of a summer session will be honored MINUS the cost of the College Board’s Participant Fee ($70). This cost covers a host of ancillary participation fees and also entitles the participant to receive a hard-copy course bundle at their home.

    How to Cancel

    To cancel, please send an email to APInstitutes@fordham.edu. Cancelling requires withdrawing from the course through the University. Thus, it is a process that takes time to complete. This means that all documentation to withdraw must have been submitted to the relevant University department with sufficient lead time as outlined above. 

    Please note that cancellations are accepted only by e-mail for documentation purposes, although an AP® team member is happy to assist over the phone with any questions.

    If a cancellation request is received past the aforementioned deadlines, the registrant may be held responsible for a portion of the cost of the institute (if not the full tuition) and will need to remit payment to Fordham University. If you don't attend the Institute AND don't withdraw, you're NOT entitled to any refund. 

  • Our policy is based on cancellation date:

    Cancellation and withdrawal prior to Institute start date - Refund = 100% of payment

    Cancellation and withdrawal by first day of Institute - Refund = 40% of payment

    Cancellation and withdrawal thereafter - Refund = 0% of payment
