If you would like to see on-site courses offered at your high school as part of the dual credit program, take the following steps:
- Submit a Dual Credit application form.
- Submit information about your teachers. High school teachers who wish to teach the dual credit courses need to provide the following materials to determine whether they can qualify as Ball State adjunct professors:
- curriculum vitae/resume for review and approval by the specific Ball State academic department applicable to the course
- copies of college transcripts from all institutions attended
- a current syllabus for the course to be taught, including: the textbook being used, topics covered in each chapter unit, required assignments, laboratory experience (if applicable), and evaluation criteria; additional information might be required after initial review
- high school teachers teaching English classes also need to provide a philosophy of teaching statement and three letters of reference
- proof of at least one English graduate course in teaching of composition successfully completed within the last 10 years. Teachers may take a Ball State course concurrently with teaching their first semester if necessary. Or we will consider classes from other institutions as long as you provide a syllabus and transcript for prior approval.
Each Ball State academic department determines the requirements for instructors teaching their courses and grants or denies approval. Contact us if you have questions.
For foreign languages applying to teach dual credit see the Modern Language and Classics Dual Credit Policy.
If you wish for your high school students to take online courses through Ball State, simply contact Program Coordinator Nancy Day.
The process involves filling out permission forms for individual students. We will walk you through it.
Only Ball State faculty members teach our online dual credit courses. They are not taught by high school teachers.
