Counselor Guidelines for Dual Enrollment

 

  1. All students taking dual enrollment must meet the requirements: minimum overall 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale on all high school courses and with successful completion of 14 core high school units and/or junior status. The 14 core high school units are listed and defined in Appendix B of the Mississippi Public School Accountability Standards. Students who have not completed 14 core high school units or achieved junior status may be admitted to the dual enrollment/credit program with a minimum of an overall 3.0 GPA on all high school courses and a minimum composite ACT score of 30 or the equivalent SAT score. An English sub score of 17 on the ACT is required to take Comp I and a 19 math sub score in order to take college algebra.
  2. Students participating in MDCC dual enrollment through their high school with their high school instructor will be limited to taking MDCC core courses unless approved by the Vice President of Instruction.
  3. A student may be enrolled in other courses through MDCC’s e-Learning provided the student meets the necessary requirements and with the permission of the MDCC Dual Enrollment Coordinator and the Vice President of Instruction.
  4. All necessary documentation from the respective high school counselor must be submitted one week prior to the start of each semester. The MDCC Dual Enrollment Coordinator will notify the proper person in charge at the high school of the exact date each semester.
  5. MDCC textbooks will need to be purchased for the courses prior to the beginning of each semester. However, no textbooks should be purchased early as there are times when the textbook changes between semesters. MDCC typically does not change textbooks between semesters unless mandated by the publisher.  *Click here for the textbook information site.*
  6. Once a senior graduates a final high school transcript with the graduation date must be mailed to Admissions, MDCC, P.O. Box 668, Moorhead, MS 38761 as soon as possible. This is a requirement.

Dual Enrollment Instructor Guidelines

 

Prior to Employment:

  • All dual enrollment instructors from area high schools must meet the same requirements as full-time faculty at MDCC. A master’s degree in the subject area or a master’s degree with a minimum of 18 graduate hours in the course being taught is required.
  • In order to be considered for employment as a Dual Enrollment Instructor, the instructor should contact their high school counselor to express interest. Once the counselor receives their letter of intent for the next semester from MDCC, the counselor will put that instructor's name on the form and the intended class. Upon receiving the completed letter of intent from the high school counselor, the dual enrollment coordinator will initiate contact with the appropriate division chair for the chair to begin the instructor approval process. If approved, the division chair will walk the prospective instructor through the hiring process as well as inform them of other protocols.
  • If you have any questions, contact the MDCC Division Chair for your subject area.

 

Responsibilities (other than teaching the course):

    1. Record attendance weekly for each student in each class in Banner. Even though you may have perfect attendance, Banner does not know this until the Submit Button in Banner is clicked. If your attendance is delinquent, your name will appear on a Missing Attendance List from Admissions which then requires your Division Chairman to contact you.  *Click here for instructions for recording attendance*
    2. Check your email frequently. Checking your email only on the day you have class or the day before is not enough. There may be times when certain situations arise that your immediate action is required. By not checking your e-mail, the Division Chairman or the Dual Enrollment Coordinator must then try to get in touch with you by phone. E-mailing is the easiest way to communicate with you so please get in the habit.
    3. You will be paid at the end of September, October, November, and December for Fall semester and February, March, April and May for the Spring Semester. You will be emailed a Class Load Form each semester to complete, sign and return to your Division Chairman. This is the form that qualifies you to receive payment for your class. We cannot accept a copy or a fax. It must be the original with an original signature. You will be given a deadline for the form to be received by your Division Chairman. If we do not receive this form by the deadline, you possibly could not receive the first check. If we are missing any of the necessary documents as stated earlier by Human Resources, your check may be held until the next month.
    4. Division Chairmen that have dual enrollment courses are:
      • English—Emily Riser
      • Fine Arts—Jennifer Woodard
      • Humanities—Allyson Price Lofton
      • Math and Science—Debbie Gantz
    5. If you have any questions, click here to visit the Adjunct Faculty Resource Page (or go to Quick Links on the MDCC website and click on Adjunct Faculty Resource Page) for further information.
    6. Mississippi Delta Community College reserves the right to discontinue the use of any adjunct instructor in the dual enrollment courses as seen fit by the Division Chair or the Vice President of Instruction.
