Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register without a College Board Educator Professional Account and why are there two different paths to the registration?

If you are applying for a NON-AP workshop then you will go through the normal TEC registration process. If you are selecting an AP workshop, you will be directed to another website to complete the registration.

The College Board
is using a new registration system (Cvent) that all Advanced Placement Summer Institutes need to use.

If you are applying for an AP workshop, we cannot
continue the registration process until you complete the College Board Educator Professional Account information page. It takes about 2 minutes to complete and once you have entered in the information, the system will recognize you for future years and workshop sessions.

Where do I go if I need to change any information, cancel the workshop session, change dates or housing options?

You should call or email the Taft Educational Center Office: or (860) 945-7837. All modifications, cancellations and payments must be done through our office.

What is the cancellation policy?

Workshop participants who have registered by June 1 may receive a full tuition refund if they make a request in writing before June 1.

All cancellations received on or after June 1 will be subject to a $300 cancellation fee.

If a cancellation request is made on or after June 1, Taft Educational Center will accept a replacement participant from the same school.

"No-shows" will be responsible for full tuition fee payment. Participants in workshops that are cancelled by TEC for any reason receive full refunds.

When do I need to decide if I want graduate credits?

Graduate credits are optional.

Each participant will have the University of Hartford forms emailed to them on the Friday that they have completed their workshop.

You are not obligated to apply at this time. You have up to three (3) years to apply for credits. \

If TEC cancels a workshop session, how will I be notified and will I get reimbursed?

If TEC cancels a workshop session we will notify you via email and/or your mobile phone.

You will be given the option to go into another workshop
session either in the same week or a different week.

If you decide that you cannot make any additional workshop sessions then you will be 100% refunded any monies that were sent to us.

When does the workshop end on Friday?

The workshop week ends on Friday at 11:30.

Please note that the office is closed on Saturday.

Is paying by credit card the only option?

We are no longer accepting purchase orders from schools or school districts as payment for any online workshops We will accept Purchase Orders for on campus workshops until June 14th.
