Advanced Placement Summer Institute

Tillman Hall

The 2015 Clemson University Advanced Placement Summer Institutes have ended. Please refer back to this website on March 1st, 2016 for information regarding the courses being offered as part of the 2016 CUAPSI.

Registration: Final determination of course offerings will be announced on March 1, 2016 if the state department grant has been finalized by this date. Registration for courses will begin on April 1, 2016 and run through May 15, 2015. The cost for each AP course will be $225 for South Carolina public school teachers and $500 for all non-South Carolina public school teachers. Late fees will apply to all registrations made after April 15, 2016.

Registration steps (ALL steps must be completed in this order by May 30th to reserve a seat in a course):

  1. Visit Clemson’s APSI Marketplace registration link (available here on April 1st). Enter your personal information and pay the AP registration fee by credit card or e-check.
  2. Within one week of your Marketplace registration, you will receive an email with a link to apply as a non-degree seeking student or returning student to the Clemson University Graduate School. You must follow this link and pay the $60 graduate school application fee (if non-returning) to confirm your AP registration.
  3. Upon acceptance to the graduate school, you will receive an email with a link to accept your admittance and information about providing proof of citizenship at APSI packet pickup. This is an important final step in your registration process in order to receive academic credit.
  4. Set up your Clemson student account and create a password.

Refund policy: All registration fees are non-refundable. If you fail to complete any registration step listed above by May 30th, you will lose your spot in the course and all registration fees will be forfeited.

All courses are offered in Greenville at the University Center with the exception of the science classes, which meet at a local area high school.

Packet Pickup:
Packet pickup will occur from 7:30-8:30 am on the first Monday of each institute. Please plan on picking up your books and providing appropriate citizenship documentation (copy and original of your passport or birth certificate) during this time.

and use both in class and online instruction. Teachers are required to participate in BOTH parts of the course. It is not possible to only complete the online portion.
