Dual Enrollment


  1. Dual credit instructors shall be adjunct faculty of DSU and must meet the requirements set forth by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Delta State University has the sole authority in the selection of dual credit instructors. Therefore, no expectation to teach a course of DSU is extended until the Chief Academic Officer has approved the selection to teach using the regular certification of credentials process used at DSU.
  2. Dual credit instructors will be under the supervision of DSU, and the academic department in particular, for the purposes of establishing the course content, student learning outcomes, and evaluation of the dual credit faculty. DSU will provide faculty orientation, supervision and evaluation. Should the evaluation of a dual credit instructor fall below acceptable DSU standards, school superintendent will be notified of a plan of corrective action or removal of the instructor as an approved dual credit instructor.
  3. Dual credit teachers are paid $67.50 per student with classes of 9 or fewer students; teachers with 10 or more enrolled are paid $675 per course.
