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 2021 Summer Institute.

Participants participating in the virtual 2021 Summer Institute are eligible to request graduate credit upon their completion of the 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 $250. 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 7/23 or Register for Session II by 7/30). 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:

Step 1: Complete the Graduate Non-Degree Application

Students starting non-degree course(s) for the Summer 2021 term, should click here for the Graduate Non-Degree application (https://www.bridgew.edu/grad-non-degree).

If you’ve never entered our application portal, you’ll want to click on “Students without an Account” and click “Start a Non-Degree Application”.

Please contact Graduate Admissions (gradadmissions@bridgew.edu) with questions regarding the Graduate Non-Degree Application.

 

Step #2: Retrieve Your Banner ID

Your Banner ID is the 8-digit number emailed to you once your Graduate Non-Degree application has been processed by Graduate Admissions. You will need this to access many of the items below, so be sure to have it handy. If you have lost your acceptance letter or cannot remember it, the Office of Graduate Admissions can help. Write to GradAdmissions@bridgew.edu from the email address used to complete your Graduate Application for any help or questions during this step.

 

Step #3: Claim your BSU user account

All new BSU students must claim a User Account, giving access to campus computers, BSU email account, the campus wireless network, and the internal BSU website (Intranet), among other things.  You will be prompted to create a password and will be assigned a Username and Email address. https://services.bridgew.edu/claimaccount/

*Email is the official form of communication at Bridgewater State University. Please be sure to check your email account regularly.
 

Step #4: Be sure to find your respective "Course Number" (CRN) from the list below. You'll want to write it down so you can enter it during the registration process.
