High School Teacher Credential Programs

The College Credit Plus (CCP) program was established by the Ohio Legislature to provide high school students the opportunity to earn transcripted college credit while pursuing their high school degree. The Higher Learning Commission requires that instructors teaching dual enrollment courses have the same credentials and qualifications as faculty on the campus and must thus meet the following Ohio Board of Higher Education faculty qualifications:

Faculty members teaching general education courses must hold a master’s degree in the discipline or a master’s degree and a cohesive set of at least 18 semester credit hours of graduate coursework relevant to the discipline. Individuals who are making substantial progress toward meeting the faculty credentialing requirements and who are mentored by a faculty member who does meet the minimum credentialing requirements may serve as instructors while enrolled in a program to meet credentialing requirements. Examples of such individuals include graduate teaching assistants (GTAs), adjunct faculty members and dual enrollment faculty members.
