High school teachers: Become eligible to teach dual enrollment courses

Help high school students get a jumpstart on college

Dual enrollment instructors teach academic and occupational classes that allow high school students to earn credit for high school and college at the same time. The classes are taught by high school teachers who have met hiring qualifications by community colleges and universities. Typically, dual-enrollment instructors are required to have a master’s degree or higher in their chosen content area, or a master’s degree in any area with 18 graduate hours (500+) in the content area. You can learn more about the Maricopa Community College dual enrollment program, including the key early college academic course options to teach. The requirements to become certified to teach dual enrollment classes can be found on the Maricopa Community Colleges website: View Qualifications.
