Become an Instructor

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The HLC is the accrediting body of higher education institutions in the North central region of the United States. The HLC determines the required credentials of all faculty and adjunct instructors at UW-Green Bay including concurrent enrollment instructors through the College Credit in High School program.
 

Requirements

Instructors are required to have a master’s degree in the discipline they are teaching. If a teacher’s master’s degree is in another discipline, they must have at least 18 graduate credits in the discipline. Additionally, discipline specific experience can be evaluated by UW-Green Bay faculty to determine if it will qualify the instructor.
For instructors teaching applying to teach in modern languages have a master’s degree other than the language, they will be required to take the OPI Proficiency and Writing Proficiency assessments through Language Testing International and are required to score in the advanced range. UW-Green Bay will provide access to these assessments at no cost to the instructor or school district.
 

Process

Potential instructors submit materials to the CCIHS director for review and submission to the UW-Green Bay faculty department. The faculty will evaluate the potential instructor’s credential to determine their approval.
 

Approval

There are currently two (2) levels of approval:
  • Provisionally Approved: Instructors have a master’s degree and adequate experience, but not a minimum of 18 graduate credits in the discipline. Provisionally approved instructors are approved to start teaching the class but must earn the minimum number of graduate credits by September 2022.
     
  • Fully Approved: Instructors have a master’s degree in the discipline or if their master’s degree is in another area, they have a minimum of 18 graduate credits in the field or adequate additional experience. Fully approved instructors do not need additional coursework.
