Dual Credit Instructors

Instructor Requirements

Thank you for your interest in teaching Dual Credit with OTC! Before completing the Dual Credit application process below, review course descriptions and compare your experiences with instructor credentialing requirements to ensure potential course offerings and instructor credentials align with OTC standards.

The college requires that dual credit instructors follow OTC policies and procedures. OTC holds students in dual credit classes to the same academic standards and expectations as post-secondary students. Learning objectives, grading criteria and textbooks for Dual Credit classes are the same as course sections at OTC.

Required Application Documents

After review of course descriptions and comparison of experiences with instructor credentialing requirements to ensure potential course offerings and instructor credentials align with OTC standards, complete the four required components of the application process:

  • Instructor Application (fillable form – please type, print, and sign)
  • Transcripts (unofficial are accepted for review, official are required if approved)
  • Current Resume or Curriculum Vitae
  • Sample Syllabus

Optional Application Documents

  • Written Narrative (of upper-level teacher experience and course of interest)
  • Letters of Recommendation

Scan and email complete application packages to dualcredit@otc.edu

Deadlines

All required materials must be submitted before May 1 for fall course approval or November 1 for spring course approval.

Next Steps

Completed application packets will be forwarded to the appropriate department chair and dean for review. The department chair may ask for additional information about high school teacher qualifications and/or high school resources. All applicants are notified of their final review status.

Approved instructors will be contacted by a faculty liaison to discuss course curriculum/syllabus, textbook, course objectives and outcomes. Approved instructors are expected to meet with the department chair and attend the OTC Instructor Orientation, which typically occurs in August. The participating secondary institution will complete a Memorandum of Understanding with OTC.

Prior to the beginning of the semester, the Dual Credit Office will email the following information to all partnering high schools:

  • Dates and Deadlines
