The IU Dual Credit Pipeline is designed as a sustainable approach to ensure that all Indiana teachers offering dual credit courses on and after Sept 1, 2022 are eligible, trained, supported, and delivering the highest quality college course. To accomplish this objective, the Pipeline combines IU graduate coursework with ongoing programmatic support that matches expectations of the on-campus department/academic unit, and Higher Learning Commission.
ACP Dual Credit Pipeline Project
Below are some key components to the ACP Pipeline.
- Instructors with a Master's degree (but fewer than 18 graduate hours in the dual credit discipline) will be evaluated through the application process for admission to an approved IU graduate certificate program determined by IU to meet department and HLC expectations. Total credit hour need, and eligibility will be determined at point of entry into the program.
- Instructors without a Master's degree will be evaluated through the application process for admission to an approved IU combined graduate certificate program + Master’s in Arts in Teaching program determined by IU to meet department and HLC expectations. Total credit hour need, and eligibility will be determined at point of entry into the program.
- IU faculty course coordinators, graduate courses instructors, and site visitors will provide guidance and oversight, and perform regular classroom site visits.
- Participants will engage in annual course related professional development and receive mileage and hotel accommodation in accordance to IU Travel policies for the annual professional development event.
The following pertains to all participants and schools:
- The instructor and Indiana school must affirm that the course(s) will be offered by the instructor as an ACP course(s) for IU credit while participating in the Pipeline Project. ACP instructors may NOT offer dual credit for another institution to students within the same classroom being taught for Indiana University dual credit.
- The instructor and Indiana school must affirm that the course(s) will be delivered with the required components, assessments, materials and conditions outlined in training, through updates & professional development, and direction of IU faculty coordinators and site visitors.
- The instructor and Indiana school must affirm that the instructor will attend annual professional development, and host the IU faculty site visitor annually, or as requested.
- The instructor and Indiana school must affirm that the course training, materials, assessments, syllabi, and content will not be used to instruct non-ACP courses.
To be eligible for the ACP Dual Credit Pipeline, an instructor must:
- be approved for enrollment in an approved IU graduate program and complete training required to teach an ACP course at an Indiana high school
- teach an ACP course each year
- be in need of:
- additional content graduate credit while holding a non-content Master's degree or
- a Master's degree with 18 graduate content course hours.
The ACP Dual Credit Pipeline Project is funded in part by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
