Instructor Qualifications Policy


  • Policy on Qualifications of Course Instructors
    This policy is designed to ensure that faculty and other instructors of credit-bearing courses are qualified to teach according to the University’s standards of quality and the Principles of Accreditation established by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).   It defines the academic degrees and disciplinary requirements instructors must meet to teach courses at specific levels and within appropriate content areas, describes procedures for obtaining approval for exceptions, and identifies the credentials the University requires to document individual instructor qualifications.
