High School Faculty Credentialing & Application Process
Our high school faculty are integral members of the Concurrent Enrollment Program and the Saint Paul College community.
To teach in the Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP), a high school faculty member must complete an application and be approved by the college. CEP high school faculty must meet the college minimum credentials for faculty members. Credentials needed to teach courses in the Minnesota State system are determined at the system level.
- Liberal Arts or General Education high school faculty must possess a Master’s Degree in field (Math, English, Sociology, etc.) OR a Master’s Degree in any field with 18 credits in the discipline of the course (Math, English, Sociology, etc.).
- Career and Technical Education faculty must meet the faculty credentials set forth by Minnesota State’s joint faculty credentialing board. These criteria include appropriate education requirement, occupational experience requirement, and work recency. Review each credential field individually.

High school faculty who want to teach a Concurrent Enrollment class go through an application process to demonstrate that they meet credentialing requirements identified by Minnesota State. The teachers need to submit a resume and unofficial transcripts for an initial review by email to Katie Pierre, Director of College Partnerships, at email@example.com.
Saint Paul College has a multi-step high school faculty credentialing process. If a high school faculty is determined to be credential eligible, they will be directed to complete an application packet. Credential acceptance or denial letters will be sent to the high school faculty and high school or district-level administrators.
