Faculty Qualifications

Dual credit instructors are required to follow SCC policies and procedures. Students in dual credit classes are held to the same academic standards and expectations as post-secondary students. Learning objectives, grading criteria and textbooks for dual credit classes will be the same as course sections held on campus at SCC.

Faculty Support

Dual credit faculty are provided the same professional development opportunities provided to part-time faculty. Dual credit faculty are also provided the same support provided to part-time faculty and are subject to the same evaluation systems.

Each dual credit instructor has an on-campus full-time faculty member to provide support and assistance in offering the college course at their high school and in ensuring that each college course offered is equivalent to the same courses offered on the college campus. Dual credit faculty are also evaluated by students using the Idea Survey Evaluation and according to the same schedule and procedures used for on-campus faculty. This evaluation may include a formative classroom visit with an immediate follow-up conference. Evaluations are collected for all courses taught.

Dual credit faculty are responsible for:
  • Collaborating with department chairs and/or designated lead instructor in the design and delivery of dual credit courses.
  • Attending dual credit and departmental orientation meetings/trainings annually.
  • Providing a course syllabus, assignments, assessments and evaluations to ensure that the course is equivalent to the on-campus course.
  • Confirming accurate class rosters each semester.
  • Submitting grades and attendance information by the stated deadlines.
  • Using approved SCC textbooks and resources.
  • Keeping good course records should SCC need them in the event of a grade appeal.
  • Using the SCC email system or the CANVAS messaging tool for all related communication.
  • Communicating with the department chair and/or division office coordinator.
  • Utilizing CANVAS and MySCC as tools for faculty resources and professional development.
  • Posting “Dual Credit Fact Sheets” that outline policies and procedures on CANVAS each semester.
