APSI Participants in class and playing a game in the dining hall

Before the Institute:

Covid Vaccination Requirement

In accordance with Carleton College’s policy, all participants in the 2022 APSI must provide proof of vaccination against Covid-19. Visit Carleton’s Covid-19 Response website for more information.

College Board® Materials

All APSI participants will receive a PDF of the College Board (CB) workshop-specific materials a few weeks before the start of the institute. The CB requires that each participant is provided these materials and the cost of the materials is included in your workshop tuition. When you receive the PDF, you are free to make your own hard copy of the materials. If you wish to obtain hard copy materials officially produced and distributed by CB, you can order a copy through the CB online store and make a personal payment for the materials.

Depending on the specific guidelines of your district, you may be able to use this certificate as documentation for Continuing Education Units.

Transportation & Parking


Participants who are driving to campus are welcome to park in any campus parking lot or on the street. Some street parking does have restrictions, so obey all parking signs, as they will be enforced throughout the workshop.
