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 and may ask for additional information about high school resources and high school teacher qualifications. Additionally, high school teachers who participate in the Univeristy of Idaho Dual Credit Program will be expected to meet
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
University faculty wishing to pursue dual credit opportunities should contact the interested high school or teacher and discuss the possibilities of a dual credit partnership (i.e., syllabus, curriculum, outcome, assessment).
Please Note: High school teachers who participate in the University of Idaho Dual Credit Program will be expected to meet with sponsoring university faculty and possibly attend workshops.
- Upon completion and approval of the review process, the university faculty member will contact the partnering high school/school district and negotiate an agreement.
- Once an agreement has been determined, the university faculty member will contact the dual credit coordinator and request an articulation agreement. The faculty member will provide:
- School district name
- High school name
- High school teacher’s name
- High school teacher’s degree and degree discipline
- University course subject and number
- University course title
- Number of credits
- Course start date and end date
Following are some helpful guidelines to consider when negotiating start datesand end dates:
- The start date is when the university MUST have students registered in the system. It does not need to coincide with the first day of school. For first-time students, registration forms need to be received one week prior to the start date noted in item d. of the articulation agreement. This gives the university ample time to admit and register students.
- The end date is when grades are due. The articulation agreement indicates, “The high school instructor will report grades to the University of Idaho coordinating instructor within 72 hours of the course completion date. The University of Idaho coordinating instructor will post grades in the Banner system upon receipt.” Instructors will want to negotiate this date so that university faculty are able to post final grades in the system 72 hours after the end date on the agreement.
- The dual credit coordinator will complete and forward a copy of the articulation agreement along with a copy of the High School Dual Credit Admission and Registration form to the partnering high school with instructions to:
- Review the articulation agreement for accuracy
- Ensure start and end dates are specified in section d.) of the agreement
- Secure all appropriate signatures
Please Note: If the high school prefers, student registration forms, along with payment, may be submitted at the beginning of the semester in which the course is taught. They must, however, be received prior to the start date entered on the articulation agreement.
High School Dual Credit Admission and Registration forms must:
- Be filled out completely and legibly
- Include all three signatures
- Have either payment or a scholarship application attached
Return all documents to the Dual Credit Office at the address noted in #1 above.
- The dual credit coordinator will:
- Review the packet upon receipt
- Email a scanned copy of the articulation agreement to the Registrar’s Office along with a request to activate or build a new section record for the partnering high school
- Route articulation agreement for signatures (original copy with all signatures will be filed in the Registrar’s Office)
- And, when received, route student registration forms to the Registrar’s Office for processing
- The Registrar’s Office will:
- Activate or build a new section record
- Process, scan and file the registration forms (new student applications will be forwarded to Admissions first, and then routed back to Registrar’s Office for entry)
- Route fee payment to Student Accounts/Cashiers
- Scan and file the articulation agreement upon receipt from Vice Provost
