Summer Institute FAQs
- Returners (or advanced participants) who are applying for both a reading and writing institute
- Early applicants (those who apply soon after the application is released, around the end of February)
- Teachers who have demonstrated a commitment to our work and who function as lead-teachers or mentor teachers to others
- Teachers in schools that receive on-site professional development from one or more of our staff developers Building and district administrators
- Students or teachers who are taking the institute for Teachers College graduate credits (3 or more credits) International applicants
Included in all registration fees is a $75 non-refundable application and processing fee. Accepted applicants who withdraw before the deadline will be charged this fee. Those who withdraw after the deadline will be charged the entire institute fee.
The 14-day payment deadline does not apply to graduate credit applicants, as payment is due directly to Teachers College. Students of Teachers College will find the course numbers available for summer classes under the class directory. Please note that registration will be available via the TC Portal beginning April 30. Non-Teachers College students (upon acceptance) will need to complete the non-degree application found below and will be able to register via registration tools beginning April 30.
