Each institute is limited to 25 participants, with the exception of our instititutes where a lab is involved. In those instances the enrollment is limited to 12-16 participants. Qualified applicants will be accepted on a first-come/first-served basis. The registration deadline is three weeks prior to the start date of each institute.

In-Service Credit
You must attend each day to receive in-service credit.

Graduate Credit
If you are taking the course for graduate credit, in addition to attending the institute each day, there is a project that is due within 2 weeks of the conclusion of the institute.

The Summer Institutes are all offered for 3 graduate credits and are approved as such by the New York State Department of Education. The institutes meet for 45 contact hours, of which 30 hours consist of classroom instruction and 15 hours consist of outside work, including a course project which is due within two weeks of the institute end date. This is the same breakdown of hours for all of our graduate courses that are offered during the fall and spring semesters on a 14-week schedule, the only difference is that the summer institutes are offered on a more intense schedule.

The institutes are all listed with the course code, EDU 524, which is part of our graduate course offerings in the Division of Education and can be used as an elective towards our Master of Science degree in Education. The general course description can be found on our website at:
