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.

To begin your journey towards eligibility to teach dual enrollment courses, follow these steps:
Review the information provided by Maricopa Community Colleges detailing HLC minimum qualifications for hiring in your desired subject area. If you have questions about what courses (course prefixes, course titles, master’s degrees, etc.) qualify under a specific dual enrollment subject area, please consult with your coordinating college. If you’re not sure which coordinating college to contact, please refer to the Maricopa Community Colleges dual enrollment website.
Review the ASU courses that may align with your dual enrollment subject area. If courses you need are not listed there, visit ASU Class Search to view your classes of interest. To search for courses, please choose the term you want to begin taking courses, the campus, the subject area, and click on “Advanced Search” to choose the “graduate” level. Note if the courses are offered via ASU online classes or the in-person/iCourses (campus based courses offered virtually).
Once determining the way that your courses of interest are offered, complete an ASU application choosing that campus: admission.asu.edu/graduate/nondegree. You will be able to register for courses offered from the campus you are admitted to. For example, if you are admitted as an on-campus student, you will be able to register for in person and iCourses.
Once you have been admitted as a non-degree seeking student, email email@example.com and include the subject area in which you would like to take courses. You will then be connected with the academic advisor in that subject area for registration assistance, if needed.
