Event registration details for our Fall semester seminar series can be completed by following this link (https://ers.tamu.edu/default.aspx?eventid=2994). Our Fall 2016 Schedule is available here (http://cte.tamu.edu/Graduate-Student-Support/Academy-of-Future-Faculty/Schedule).
New students interested in registering and completing the certificate requirements should register by completing a questionnaire at http://tinyurl.com/2016AFF/ in order to gain access to course materials on eCampus. 
Continuing students need not re-register since you will be automatically registered in the 2016 - 2017 session by September 1 and grades awarded prior to the end of the 2015-2015 academic year tallied and imported into the new grade book. It is recommended that new materials requiring grading are submitted through the 2016-2017 AFF session. If a continuing student is not registered on eCampus by September 1, please contact us at aff@tamu.edu and include your UIN in the email to be added to eCampus.
Please be reminded that the deadline to complete the requirements for the AFF certificate program during this academic year is March 31st, 2017. Though all AFF participants have a total of two (2) years to complete certificate requirements, participants who have met all requirements by the Spring deadline would graduate.
Completing all requirements mean that we must have the following on file for you: attendance OR quizzes for 8 seminars, 8 reflections, 2 classroom observations, mentor contract and all requested professional documents. Please refer to your gradebook for your progress on this (see the My Progress/Grades menu on eCampus) as we will not be able to look into individual records until after the deadline March 31, 2017). Once we've determined that you've completed the requirements, you will receive an invitation email to the banquet scheduled for April 26, 2017; otherwise, you could complete the program within the allotted 2 academic year period. Thank you and best wishes.
Note: Due to the amount of emails we receive, please reserve non-urgent questions for AFF committee members at an AFF seminar where you will receive an immediate answer to your question. Thank you for understanding :)
