What expenses am I responsible for?
There is a $200 registration fee to attend the Teacher Symposium that is non-refundable after May 1, 2024.
There is an additional optional $300 fee for room and board on campus at Gettysburg College in single, air-conditioned rooms. All meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner, a total of nine meals) are included in this fee.
Participants are responsible for their own travel and transportation costs.
For more information about how to get to Gettysburg College, please visit their website here.
What is included in the room-and-board fee?
This is an optional add-on to any registration. It will allow participants to stay on the Gettysburg College campus in single, air-conditioned rooms. All meals (dinner on Sunday, three meals on Monday and Tuesday, and breakfast and lunch on Wednesday) will be included for each day and provided by the Gettysburg College food service department. For more information on Gettysburg College housing, visit the On-Campus Accommodations tab.
Please note: If you opt out of the room-and-board fee, you will be expected to find your own food and lodging for the duration of the Symposium.
Can my school pay for my registration?
Yes. We can accept payment from your school for your registration, including purchase orders. Please email us at email@example.com with any questions on this process.
What if I register and cannot attend the Teacher Symposium?
If you give us notice by May 1, 2024, that you cannot attend the Symposium, we can refund your registration fees minus a $50 administrative fee. After May 1, we will not issue any refunds for Teacher Symposium registrations.
Can I earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or Professional Development Points (PDPs)?
Gilder Lehrman professional development programs are generally eligible for CEU and PDP credits, but it is your responsibility to verify eligibility with your school administration or state PD office. (The Institute is an approved provider of professional development in Massachusetts, Montana, New York, Texas, and Washington State, and in Michigan through a partnership with the Michigan Council for History Education.) If you need more information to determine eligibility than is available on the Teacher Symposium page, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I receive graduate credit?
At this time, we are not able to offer graduate credit for our Teacher Symposium. You may wish to consider taking courses in the Gettysburg College–Gilder Lehrman MA in American History program.
