Instructor in class with students


In order to provide your students with quality collegiate-level education and to enhance transferability, the Missouri Department of Higher Education requires all dual credit instructors to meet the following guidelines:

  • Master’s degree in the subject they wish to teach or
  • Master’s degree in any other subject area, with a minimum of 18 hours of graduate coursework in the subject they wish to teach.


  1. Potential Dual Credit faculty must send a current resume and official transcripts to NCMC for approval process.
  2. A letter must be sent to NCMC from the high school principal or counselor stating which dual credit courses will be offered each semester and who will be teaching them.

Potential Dual Credit faculty can email a current resume and unofficial transcripts to [email protected] for review.
