Frequently Asked Questions from Dual Credit Instructors

How do I become an approved dual credit instructor for my school?
The approval process for a high school faculty member to teach a dual credit course is consistent with the standards used for an adjunct faculty member at Waubonsee and corresponds with guidelines from our governing body, the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB). Waubonsee's Academic Division Dean will examines your qualifications, including a resume, degree credentials, teaching competency, years of teaching experience, ect., and may conduct an interview if they feel it is necessary. After the Dean reviews your materials, they will confirm or deny your approval based on whether you meet Waubonsee's Adjunct Faculty Qualifications to Teach. The Academic Division Dean has the authority make the final decision regarding the initial and subsequent approvals of faculty teaching courses for Waubonsee Community College in the high schools.
