High school teachers wishing to teach dual credit courses must submit an application to the Dual Credit Office. Academic qualifications will vary depending on the discipline – meaning each department sets its own standards for selecting dual credit affiliates.
Required Application Documents:
- Letter of introduction that includes contact information, teaching experience, course of interest, and sample syllabus
- Current resume
- Transcripts (unofficial are fine)
- Full name, address and date of birth (required to create /verify a record in the university’s system)
Submit Application Packet To:
- University of Idaho, Dual Credit Office, 875 Perimeter Drive MS 3099, Moscow, ID 83844-3099
- Fax (208) 885-2001
- Email email@example.com
Application packets will be forwarded to the sponsoring department for review, and teachers will be contacted by a faculty liaison to discuss course curriculum/syllabus, learning outcomes, and assessment.
Please Note: The sponsoring department may ask for additional information about high school teacher qualifications and/or high school resources. High school teachers who participate in the University of Idaho Dual Credit Program will be expected to meet with sponsoring university faculty and attend workshops.
After completion of the review process, the university faculty liaison and the high school teacher will agree upon a course syllabus, which should include the name of the dual credit course, teacher contact information, textbook, grading scale, and learning outcomes. The syllabus must also include the following comment regarding academic integrity, along with a link to the University’s Student Code of Conduct:
“The University of Idaho’s student code of conduct exists to educate students in understanding their rights and responsibilities as members of a safe, civil, and ethical academic community. It applies to all registered students, including dual credit students. Complete information can be found at www.uidaho.edu/DOS/judicialaffairs/studentcodeofconduct.”
The faculty liaison will contact the Dual Credit Office and request a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The Dual Credit Office will draft and email the MOU to the high school teacher with instructions to:
- Review it for accuracy
- Complete information in any highlighted areas
- Secure all appropriate high school and school district signatures
- Include all required attachments noted in Item 10
- Make a copy and send original to the Dual Credit Office via USPS, fax, or email
When all signatures have been secured, a final copy of the MOU, along with attachments, will be returned to the school district office. Copies will also be maintained by the sponsoring college and the Dual Credit Office.
Prior to the beginning of the semester, the Dual Credit Office will email the following information to all partnering high schools:
- Important program updates
- Dates and deadlines
- Course listing (arranged by high school)
- Registration instructions
