How to Register 

Where applicable for AP courses, participants have the option of registering for an (EXPERIENCED) or a (NEW) section. Courses marked Experienced are geared towards AP teachers with three or more years of experience teaching that particular AP course. Courses marked New are for AP teachers with two or fewer years of experience teaching that particular AP course. Note: these course designations do not reflect the number of years a teacher has spent in the classroom, but rather the number of years the teacher has spent teaching that specific AP course. In addition, participants have the option of selecting which week to attend.

*Please note, registering for the summer institute secures your spot to attend but does not earn you graduate credit. Students interested in receiving graduate credit should go to the second tab titled “GRADUATE CREDIT” and follow the directions outlined there.

PLEASE NOTE: not all courses are available both weeks.

Please click here to register for the 2020 Summer Institute.

Participants participating in the virtual 2020 Summer Institute are eligible to request graduate credit upon their completion of non-capstone week-long classes run by Mass Insight Education. The cost for 3 graduate credits from Bridgewater State University which corresponds with the MIE Summer Institute offerings completed is $225. Participants seeking graduate credits will be expected to attend and complete the Summer Institute in full, and may be expected to complete additional coursework before and/or after the Summer Institute. Participants should review the course syllabus or speak with their instructor to receive additional information on course expectations and requirements for graduate credit seekers.

**Participants seeking graduate credit must officially register before the conclusion of their respective week-long session (Register for Session I courses by 7/26 or Register for Session II by 8/2). No exceptions will be granted beyond the stated deadline above.

***Please note, graduate credit can only be earned once for the same exact topic/level (i.e. a student can only receive credit once for Teaching A.P. Chemistry-New Teachers)

***Please note, credits/grades earned are part of a student's Bridgewater State University academic record and cannot be removed for any reason once officially listed. 

The steps to register for graduate credit are below:

Your Banner ID 

1. Students looking to be awarded graduate credit for completing their coursework through Mass Insight Education will first need to complete the Graduate Non-Degree Application for the Summer semester to ensure an account is created on our student information system at Bridgewater State University. Bridgewater State University uses your Banner identification number as your official form of identification for registering for classes, viewing/printing grade reports and accessing our online payment system, eBill. Once students are assigned a Banner ID, they should create a unique 6-digit P.I.N. and be sure to keep this information confidential.

**If you are currently enrolled at BSU, you do not have to complete the Graduate Non-Degree Application but instead, can register using your current Banner and P.I.N.

  • Setting Your Banner P.I.N.: Once a student has their Banner ID, they should go to infobear.bridgew.edu where they will establish their unique Banner P.I.N.

A. Click on the link to “Enter Secure Area”.

B. Enter your Banner Identification Number. When initially logging in your P.I.N. will be your 6 digit date of birth (e.g.010116) for someone born January 1, 2016.

C. After logging in for the first time, you’ll be prompted to change your Banner P.I.N. and set-up security questions should you forget your P.I.N. in the future. Please write down your P.I.N. and security answers and keep them in a secure place.

D. Logging into to "Infobear" for the first time, students will be asked a series of quick questions that help BSU to better know their students and holistically support their success.

E. Students will also be asked to complete the "Student Financial Responsibility Agreement" prior to registering for their respective class. This agreement outlines a student's financial obligation at Bridgewater State University and must be completed each semester, prior to registering for classes. 

To complete the agreement:

-Login to Infobear
-Click "Student"
-Click "Registration"
-Click "Student Financial Responsibility Agreement"
-Select the "Student Financial Responsibility Agreement" for the appropriate semester
-After reading the "Student Financial Responsibility Agreement", click "I confirm agreement"

Register for your class 

2. Once you have established your unique Banner P.I.N., you can move on to register for your specific course in conjunction with the Mass Insight Education Summer Institute. Please find your class, title and 5-digit CRN (specific course number) below:
