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. Dual enrollment classes are taught by high school instructors 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. Check with your local community colleges or universities to determine specific hiring requirements in your area. Examples of dual enrollment subject areas and hiring qualifications can be found on the Maricopa Community Colleges website: View Qualifications for Hiring.
