Step 1: Instructor Qualification Review

High school faculty interested in articulating with PCC must provide the PCC Dual Credit Program office with:

  • A copy of their college transcripts (note: web transcripts are not acceptable).
  • A current detailed Curriculum Vitae (CV), or resume.
  • A completed Dual Credit Application Form.
  • Career & Technical Education faculty should also include a detailed work history summary of related industry experience.

Submit the required documentation to: dualcredit@pcc.edu

The Division Dean will decide if the candidate meets all qualifications necessary, keeping in mind that high school faculty are not employees of PCC and as such they don’t have to meet the same competitive hiring practices as on-campus faculty. High school faculty must meet one of the qualification options listed on the Instructor Approval Form (at left) OR they might instead meet “Unposted Demonstrated Competency” which is at the Dean’s Discretion.

The PCC Division Dean will review and (if approved) sign the Instructor Approval Form (IAF). The IAF will then route to the PCC Dean of Instruction (DOI) for review and approval. If the DOI approves the IAF through Provisional or Demonstrated Competency (when criteria have not been defined in the Instructor Qualifications), then the PCC Vice President of Academic Affairs will need to sign the approval form as well.

When documents are returned to the Dual Credit office the high school faculty will be notified by the PCC Dual Credit Coordinators, and they will at that time begin Step 2: the course review process, upon submission of their Dual Credit syllabus.
