High School Teachers & Districts


For High School Teacher Applicants +/-

High School teachers are encouraged to apply to teach dual credit classes that are offered at their high schools. To serve as the Teacher of Record of a class for which college credit is awarded, high school teacher applicants must meet the credential standard of the Ohio Department of Higher Education as well as any requirements established by the respective departments for the hiring of adjunct faculty.

High School teachers who do not meet the credentialing standards of the Ohio Department of Higher Education and the respective departments, but who have some level of academic course work and experience teaching in the discipline, may be eligible to facilitate a technology-enhanced course in which a Columbus State faculty member would serve as the Teacher of Record and collaborate with the high school teacher to effectively and efficiently deliver the class. The responsibilities of the high school teacher as facilitator would be outlined in advance of the class during orientation and training sessions.

College Credit Plus Course Information (including required credentials for Adjuncts and Facilitators)

All high school teachers interested in becoming Dual Credit Instructors must apply at Along with the application, teachers must submit transcripts, a resume, a letter of recommendation from the high school principal, and any additional required documentation. All materials must be submitted at one time. Please do not "submit" the file until it is complete. All new teachers are required to attend the Dual Credit Orientation Day and will be invited to participate in on-going professional development designed to enhance the instruction of the course.

For High School Teachers who have Moved to a New School+/-

Your approval to teach a course should not change when you move to a new building or to a new district. However, you will need to re-apply and include a new letter of reference from your new administrator. Make sure you include your new contact information when you submit your materials so that we have correct information on file.

For Class Planning in your High School Building+/-

Academic Planning Document (.xslx)

Each year's Academic Planning Document should be submitted to the college by the district by March 1. The proposed list of courses for both Autumn and Spring semesters should be clearly identified and a rationale for any variation on the college calendar clearly stated. Districts are encouraged to meet with the Director of Dual Credit Programs to create, edit, and confirm these courses to ensure they are appropriate for high school on-site offerings and encompass a cohesive set of courses toward a degree pathway.
All College Credit Plus requested courses must be college-level. Schools interested in offering developmental or pre-college level mathematics courses may consider College Prep Math in their buildings. College Prep Math is designed to remediate students' mathematics challenges individually and prepare them for college-level course work. Because College Prep Math is designed to remediate math skills and improve placement, it may not be offered for college credit and will not be included on the college transcript.
