participation requirements


The following policies and procedures will apply to all certified secondary school teachers in the State of Missouri applying for acceptance into an Advanced Placement* Teacher Development Institute at Southeast Missouri State University.

To ensure that participants have ample opportunity to interact with Institute leaders, each AP* Institute is capped at 25 participants. The Online Application and all required documents need to be completed for enrollment.

Selection for participation in an AP* Institute is based upon the following criteria:

  • An applicant must hold a baccalaureate degree.
  • An applicant must be teaching in a secondary school in the current (2017-2018) and subsequent (2018-2019) academic year.
  • An applicant must have the approval and recommendation of a direct supervisor, the AP* Coordinator, or the school principal.
  • The parent institution must commit to offer an AP course subsequent to the AP* Institute which the applicant attends in academic years 2018-2019 or 2019-2020.
  • An applicant should have a minimum of three years of teaching experience.

Applicants who teach, or expect to teach, an AP* course, but who do not meet all six requirements in the list above, are encouraged to apply, and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
