Step 1: Instructor qualification review

  1. If you are a high school faculty member interested in articulating with PCC, you must submit the following required documentation to dualcredit@pcc.edu:
    • An official copy of your college transcripts (web transcripts are not acceptable).
    • A current detailed Curriculum Vitae (CV) or resume.
    • Career & Technical Education faculty should also include a detailed work history summary of related industry experience.
  2. The PCC Program Dean will decide if you meet the posted qualifications necessary.
    • You must meet or exceed one of the qualification options at the Dean’s discretion.
    • High school faculty are not PCC employees, and therefore do not have the same competitive hiring practices as on-campus faculty.
  3. The PCC Program 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 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 approve the IAF as well.
  4. Once the documents are returned to the Dual Credit office, you will be notified by your Dual Credit Coordinator.
  5. See Step 2: Course review.

New faculty approval timeline

Any requests received after April will be placed in an approval queue for the following academic year.
