CEUs and Graduate Credits.
Full-week Institutes (Weeks 1 and 4) provide 3 CEUs or 2 graduate credits per Institute. Short-week Institutes provide 1.7 CEUs or 1 graduate credit per Institute. For information regarding graduate credits, see below in this document.
Tuition Cost and Buy-One-Get-One-Free Group Discount. Tuition for each full-week Institute is $300 per person per week-long Institute and $200 per person for every short-week Institute. MELT also provides a Buy-One-Get-One-Free Group Discount on Institute tuitions for the full week Institutes. No Buy-One-Get-One-Free Discount is available for the short week institutes. Any teacher, school, or district that buys any seat in any eligible MELT Summer Institute can get one seat in either that same Institute or another eligible Institute tuition free. Pairs of teachers DO NOT need to be in the same institute or even in the same week. This discount is even applicable to one teacher who wishes to attend two eligible Summer Institutes for the price of one. Groups of teachers can organize this group discount or a school or district can organize this through the MELT program. Note that for online participants, the Buy-One-Get-One-Free group discount will not be available.
While any MELT Institute can be taken for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and without graduate course credit, some participants may wish to earn graduate credits to assist them in their graduate program pursuit.
MELT Collaboration with Graduate Studies at Appalachian State University
Participants who wish to receive academic credit for graduate courses associated with the MELT institutes (2 credits per institute) may do so for the additional cost of graduate tuition and fees. In addition to attending the institute, you will be required to complete several graded assignments under the supervision of the MELT Director.
The process for receiving academic credit depends on your current status as a student at Appalachian:
(A) If you are a current graduate student enrolled in Spring classes at Appalachian, you will be registered for the course by the MELT program upon receipt of the institute application form and institute fee. You will be billed for tuition and fees separately by the University through your student account.
(B) If you are not enrolled in Spring classes at Appalachian, you will need to seek admission to the School of Graduate Studies by completing the online application at https://www.gradadmissions1.appstate.edu/gradweb/default.asp.
∙Students who HAVE completed a graduate course at Appalachian in the last seven years must apply to be readmitted as a graduate student. There is no fee for readmission.
∙Students who HAVE NOT completed a graduate course at Appalachian in the last seven years will need to apply for admission. There is a one-time application fee (currently $65), that you will be charged during the online application process.
You will be registered for the course by the MELT program coordinator upon notification of admission from the School of Graduate Studies and receipt of the institute application form and fee.
If you have additional questions or need assistance with the process for academic credit, please contact Dr. Holly Hirst, Mathematics Graduate Program Co-Director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
