Dual Credit Agreement
Upon request from your administration, a Stockton University dual credit coordinator from the School of General Studies qualified in the designated dual credit academic subject area will visit your high school and work together with your administration and faculty toward reaching the approval and the signing of an articulation agreement for dual credit courses.
Dual Credit Instructor
In order for students to be able to earn Stockton University’s dual credits by taking a class at their high school, a high school teacher must be approved by meeting Stockton University’s teaching standards at the level of an adjunct instructor.
The proposed dual credit course must be aligned with a Stockton University on-campus class. With this in mind, the coordinator of dual credit reviews the high school’s existing curriculum, such as syllabi, copies of assignments, exams, textbooks and other supplemental materials in addition to reviewing the teacher’s grading rigor. In most cases, the high school teacher is able to make modifications to the course and syllabus that are required by the dual credit coordinator so the alignment can be accomplished.
Approval and Signing
The dual credit coordinator recommends the course and dual credit teacher and delivers the proposed course syllabus and high school teacher’s c.v. to the Dean of the School of General Studies. The Dean evaluates the course alignment and the high school faculty member’s qualification and makes a recommendation to the Provost. Upon the Provost’s approval, an agreement is drawn up and sent to the school district/high school head administrator. After the high school Superintendent and/or Principal and Director of Curriculum have signed the dual credit agreement, the high school sends it back to the University. It is then submitted for final approval to Stockton University’s President, Provost and Dean of the School of General Studies. Once they add their signatures to the agreement, the course can be offered to the high school students for dual credit.
Maintaining University Standards
After the dual credit agreement is signed, Stockton’s dual credit coordinator provides consultation and mentoring as needed to the high school dual credit faculty members and continues to evaluate the high school dual credit program to ensure quality and high standards are maintained. The coordinator also makes site visits with classroom observation, reviews curriculum, syllabus, facilities and equipment and works with the high school administration and dual credit faculty to ensure that the high school dual credit course continues to align appropriately with Stockton University’s course (content, outcomes, assessment, pedagogy).
The dual credit coordinator also organizes high school dual credit faculty consortiums, symposia and events for each discipline. These functions promote higher professional standards and build collegiality and community among the faculty from the many schools sharing dual credit with Stockton University.
