FOUR REASONS

To offer dual credit at your school.

Students can start their careers sooner.

Dual Credit can help students graduate earlier from a bachelor’s program or be available for internships to earn professional experience.

Take additional paths.

Students can specialize and individualize degree paths. Students can pursue additional majors or add minors.

Consider accelerated master’s programs.

Students can earn their master’s degree alongside or immediately following the completion of a bachelor’s degree.

Flexibility to study abroad.

Students can consider studying away. Students can travel abroad and earn credits without extending graduation date.

Prospective dual credit instructor qualifications

The Missouri Coordinating Board of Higher Education requires dual credit teachers to meet the same qualifications as adjunct faculty teaching the same course on the Missouri State University campus.

You must have a master's degree with at least 18 graduate-level hours in the discipline you plan to teach.

Approval of specific courses and respective dual credit instructors is based on credentials and recommendations of the appropriate academic department on campus.
