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)
- evaluation criteria
- (additional information might be required after initial review)
If you wish to teach English courses, you must also 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. 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.
