*Teacher Status determines the Registration Fee:

  • MIE AP Core Program Teachers: there are no registration fees for Core Program teachers who have attended fewer than two AP Summer Institutes since entering the Program, and will be teaching at least one AP math, science, or English course during school year 2017-18. For these eligible teachers, there is no cost to attend for an AP course (not a Pre-AP course).
  • MIE Sustaining Partnership Program (SPP) Teachers: please refer to the Registration Fees chart on the registration website for cost to attend. Teachers from a SPP school may have their attendance funded through a school/district partnership with MIE and should confirm with school administrators before registering. A discount may apply depending on the school/district partnership with MIE.
  • Non-MIE/Other Teachers: please refer to the Registration Fees chart on the registration website for cost to attend.
