High school teacher eligibility and application process

To be eligible to teach in the concurrent enrollment program, teachers must have one of the following:

  1. Master’s degree or higher in the discipline or subfield to be taught

  2. M.S.Ed. or MEPD specific to teaching within the discipline to be taught, when inclusive of discipline specific graduate-level content and methods courses

  3. Master's degree in another subject area not specific to teaching within the discipline to be taught, + 18 credits of graduate coursework in the subject area

  4. Master's degree in another subject area + other types of qualifying experience (e.g. graduate-level coursework in the subject area totaling less than 18 credits, research or career experience relevant to the subject area, and/or track record of teaching excellence at the college or high school level in the subject area, etc.)

Ultimately, it is the UWL academic department’s duty to holistically evaluate instructors to determine if they are qualified.
