Dual Credit New Class Checklist
New Dual Credit Instructor Process
When a high school representative requests a dual credit class:
The Dual Credit office will:
- Ask that the high school representative read the Dual Credit High School Manual
- Forward the Minimum Instructor Requirements and course descriptions to the requestor
- Request that the instructor submit his/her resume or CV and official college transcripts along with any other pertinent information regarding their qualifications to offer the dual credit class
Once the instructor provides the requested documents, the dual credit office will:
- Forward the documents to the appropriate department chair or program coordinator. They will also facilitate an in person or email meeting with the appropriate department chair, if requested.
If approved, the dual credit office will notify the requestor and instructor. In that notification, the dual credit office will request several documents:
- A syllabus for the course
- A SWIC application and POI form (provided by the dual credit office)
- A signed course agreement
Once those documents have been received, the instructor may be required to tweak the syllabus.
The dual credit office will discuss training topics like: Approving Rosters, Registration, Parent Notification, Placement Testing, and Meeting SWIC Course Requirements (Assessment, Pedagogy, Technology, Attendance at Meetings). This training session may be one on one or in a large group setting. Instructors will be considered SWIC adjunct faculty and will be encouraged to participate in all welcome weeks, advisory council meetings, and additional trainings as required.
ALL PROPOSED NEW INSTRUCTORS MUST BE PROCESSED NO LATER THAN THE SUMMER BEFORE THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR, except in the following cases:
- If a current dual credit instructor leaves their position in the high school close to the beginning of the current school year or during the school year, the dual credit coordinator will work with the school administration to help vet a new teacher who will meet the qualifications to offer dual credit.
