Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and Dual Credit Instructor Requirements

Higher Learning Commission (HLC)
and Dual Credit Instructor Requirements


The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is NWTC’s accreditation body that has imposed new credential requirements for high school dual credit instructors.  These credential requirements will be enforced in 2022 and require those that teach in the area of General Studies (Math, Language, Communications, Natural Sciences, Behavioral Sciences, Social Sciences) to possess a Master’s degree in the content areas or a Master’s degree in unrelated content plus 18 graduate credits in the content area.  Those teaching Career and Technical Education (CTE) content need to have one degree higher than the coursework that they are teaching. 

NEWERA is a group of post-secondary institutions in Northeast WI that is working on creating course access, affordability and incentives for this credential pursuit.
