Our high school partner teachers are integral members of the Concurrent Enrollment Program and the Saint Paul College community.
In order to teach in the Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP), a high school instructor must complete an application and be approved by the college. CEP instructors 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 instructors 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.).
- High school instructors who have a Master’s degree and are taking classes from an approved university to complete the 18 credits can teach concurrent enrollment classes, if they meet the following criteria:
- 2021-2022: minimum Master’s + 15 grad credits
- All high school instructors teaching CE courses with Saint Paul College must meet the credentials for their field by 2022, as identified by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
- Career and Technical Education instructors 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.
