Q: Do I have to be enrolled in the Academy certificate program to attend courses?
A: No. Anyone is welcome to register/attend Academy-related courses held at ACCP meetings.
Q: Do I have to pay a separate fee to attend an Academy-related course that is being held as a premeeting symposium?
A: Yes. Premeeting symposia (held prior to an ACCP meeting) are not included with full or one-day meeting registrations.
Q: How do I get credit for attending an Academy-related course?
A: You will be asked to sign an attendance sheet on-site, which will be used to verify your participation in the course.
Q: Can I receive credit for elective courses taken prior to my enrollment in the Academy certificate program?
A: If you enroll in the Academy within 30 days of attending a meeting, you can receive credit for the electives you attended at that meeting.
Q: How do I find out how many credits I have towards my Academy certificate?
A: E-mail Kathy Lemons at email@example.com.
Q: Can I receive credit for a required course if I have not first taken the prerequisite course for the certificate program?
A: No. The prerequisite course is a required course that must be completed before an Academy participant can receive
credit for subsequent required courses.
Q: Do I have to take the required courses in sequential order?
A: For participants in the Career Advancement program, Leadership and Management program, or the Research and Scholarship program, it is strongly recommended that required courses be taken in the correct sequence to ensure coherence of the curriculum and maximum professional development. For participants in the Teaching and Learning program, if you enrolled in the Academy after October 1, 2008, the courses must be taken in sequential order to receive credit.
Q: When do I have to have coursework and assignments completed by, in order to graduate in the fall?
A: If you have completed all live course requirements, you must complete any required readings and online portfolio assignments by August 1, prior to the ACCP Annual Meeting.
