New HLC Guidelines – Are You Ready?

Danni Babb posts an important note about new guidelines for qualified faculty beginning in 2017.

If you teach adjunct for a  four-year institution, part-time for a two- or four-year institution, or teach concurrent enrollment credit in a high school, you will need to be sure you have at least a) a Master’s (or terminal) degree in your field and b) at least 18 credit hours within that degree or beyond in the specific field you teach.

As an example, if you have a Master’s in Business Communication having taken 12 credit hours towards your degree with classes labelled as Communication, to teach a Communication class you would need an additional six credit hours to satisfy the qualifications set forth by HLC.

If you are looking for classes to ‘top up’ a degree in History, Communication, Government, natural Sciences, or English, FHSU offers certificate degree-seeking AND non-degree programs for you.  To find out more, click to our HLC faculty certificates.
