All dual credit instructors will participate in orientation activities provided by the college and/or academic department. Continuing dual credit instructors must participate in both the professional development and evaluation activities as those expected of adjunct faculty on the college campus. In order to assure comparability of the dual credit course with the corresponding experience on the college campus, college academic departments must provide instructors of dual credit courses with support services, including a designated on-campus faculty member to serve as a liaison. Dual credit instructors must be evaluated according to the college’s evaluation policies for other part-time/adjunct faculty, with the recommendation for continuation being the responsibility of the campus academic department. Thus, the institution of higher education must provide on-site supervision and evaluation of the dual credit faculty.

Textbooks & Syllabus

Dual Credit courses must duplicate the identical course offering delivered on campus. The high school must agree to use a syllabus and textbook approved by the academic department at North Central Missouri College.

Full-time NCMC instructors will work cooperatively with the dual credit instructor to develop and approve the syllabi, teaching methodology and student assessment strategies for dual credit courses.

Textbooks are provided by the High School. However, NCMC will provide the instructor with an Instructor’s Edition and any supplemental materials available.

Evaluation and Supervision

The high school will cooperate closely with the corresponding department at North Central Missouri College. The instructors will attend any necessary informational and consultation seminars and planning days. Supervision by North Central Missouri College will be on a planned basis and include visits to the high school class as a normal part of the supervisory function.

Class Rosters

Accurate class rosters are vital to ensuring students get college credit for the work done in your dual credit classes. This roster is used as the official record of enrollment and determines who is eligible to receive college credit. Students listed on the roster are those who will be billed. Assuring the accuracy of the class roster is one of your administrative responsibilities in the Dual Credit Program.

Rosters can be accessed through the instructors SAIL account. Everyone taking the class for college credit must be on the roster, and anyone not listed will not be receiving college credit. If any discrepancies are found within the roster the dual credit coordinator must be notified prior to the add/drop deadline for that semester.


North Central Missouri College’s follows a standard grading system. Grades are on the four point system (A, B, C, D, F). No pluses or minuses are used.

Final grades should be submitted through the instructor’s SAIL account when the high school semester ends. Students may view their final grades on SAIL. No official grade reports will be mailed to the student or sent to the school.


  • Instructors cannot withdraw students from classes. Students must follow the withdrawal process by doing one of the following:
  • Fill out a withdrawal card in the Registrar’s Office on the NCMC Campus
  • Send an email to from the student’s Pirate Email account
  • Student sign and mail a letter requesting to withdraw from the course
