credentialing process

Are you a high school teacher (or school district employee) interested in teaching for the School-Based Scholars (SBS) program?  SBS is accepting applications for credentialed school district personnel who would like to teach SBS classes at their respective high schools. 

Step 1: Complete the SBS Credentialing Form.

Step 2: Collect supporting documentation:

  • unofficial copies of all graduate transcripts (Official copies will be required if you are approved to teach.)
  • resume or CV

Step 3: Send the credentialling form and supporting documentation to prior to the deadline.

All application materials are due by February 15 (for fall start) or September 15 (for spring start).

Step 4: All materials will be reviewed by the SBS program and the academic department for which you are applying to teach. You will be notified as to your status after materials have been reviewed.

Step 5: If your credentials are approved, your department will ask you to go through their hiring process. This may include an interview. Once you've been vetted and approved by the department, they will have you:

  • submit official copies of all graduate transcripts
  • fill out mandatory new hire paperwork 
  • present an unexpired passport or two forms of ID
  • complete a background check

Step 6: Departments may require new instructors to go through new hire training with the department and all SBS instructors must attend SBS Faculty Orientation and Faculty Development Training each summer.
