THE COLLEGE NOW PROGRAMS Dual Credit

Enhanced Options

Expanded Options

Home School

Advanced Diploma

With Southwestern's Dual Credit (LDT) Lower Division Transfer and CTE (Career & Technical Education) programs, high school students complete both a high school course and a college course simultaneously. LDT courses are courses that fulfill the freshman and sophomore college level transfer requirements. These academic courses are transferable to four year universities. CTE courses helps students gain the skills, technical knowledge, academic foundation, and real-world experience, they need to prepare to become high-skill, high-demand, high-wage careers The Dual Credit program is perfect for students who want to begin earning college credits without having to leave their regular school routine.

High school juniors or seniors may also take a college class on the Southwestern campus or online with the Enhanced Options program.

Expanded Options, provides eligible high school students another opportunity for early entry into postsecondary education.

Local homeschooled teens may also earned credits from Southwestern through the College Now program.

There is a final option for high school seniors to get a head start on their college credits.

High school students will apply, register, and attend classes just like a regular Southwestern student. Enhanced Options is right for the high school age student who is ready for a challenge and ready for academic work in a college environment.

The Expanded Options student takes college courses, taught by Southwestern faculty, at their high school. This program promotes a seamless education system for students enrolled in grades 11 and 12 to have additional options to continue or complete their education, earn concurrent high school and college credits, and gain early entry into postsecondary education.

The Homeschooled student has the option of working with local high schools or directly through the college.

Local high students who graduate with a standard diploma can return for a fifth year of high school, enrolled concurrently as a high school and college student. This option is particularly effective for seniors who might need an additional year of transition before college. The Advanced Diploma program is something the parent and student should first discuss with their high school principal.


WELCOME TO COLLEGE NOW! The College Now program enables high school students at participating in-district schools to receive college credit for some of their high school courses through an “articulated credit”. By the time these students graduate from high school they will already have a running start at on their post-secondary education, significantly reducing their overall costs and better preparing them for the future. SWOCC works with area high schools to offer college-level transfer courses in the high schools, taught by high school instructors, exclusively for high school students. The majority of the selected courses are lower-division, general education courses that have been certified as meeting the requirements of the SWOCC transfer curriculum. Classes can be used to meet SWOCC certificate or degree requirements, as well as for transfer to community colleges and most universities across the U.S. Since SWOCC Dual Credit courses are the result of an alignment between high school and college courses requiring college level work, not all high school courses are eligible. Check with your high school counselor to find out which courses at your high school have partnered with the SWOCC Dual Credit program or visit www.socc.edu/collegenow/ and get a head start on your own college and career preparation!

To Instructors, Schools and the College:  Facilitate a productive interaction between high schools and the college for curriculum development  Enhanced college-school-community relations  Coordinated curriculum helps to assure students meet college standards  Reduce redundancy of courses between high school and college


APPLYING TO TEACH A COLLEGE NOW COURSE College Now instructors must be approved for every course, in every discipline, and by individual departments. This discipline specific endorsement ensures that instructors have been trained, prepared, and mentored by college faculty in the discipline in which they will be teaching. This ensures that students will be held to the same standards as their on-campus counterparts. The following process, qualifications, and timelines apply to new College Now instructors.

INSTRUCTOR REQUIREMENTS In order to establish an articulation agreement, the high school instructor must “qualify” to teach at the community college level, and the high school course must “articulate” to the SWOCC course. For Career & Technical Education (CTE) instructors, the high school instructor would have to “qualify” as a college CTE instructor, with a combination of education and related work experience(s). The table below details the different criteria a CTE instructor would need in order to qualify. Career & Technical Education • Master’s degree in a subject area and 3 years recent full time, non-teaching work experience in the field • Bachelor’s degree in subject area and 4 years recent full time, non-teaching work experience in field • Bachelor’s degree in related area plus 30 quarter hours of graduate credit in division coursework in subject area, and 4 years recent full-time, non-teaching work experience in field, non-teaching work experience in field • AAS degree in subject area or professional education plus 5 years recent full time, teaching work experience in the field • Demonstrated competency and/or qualifications set by licensing organizations in the field

For Lower Division Transfer (LDT) instructors, the high school instructor would have to “qualify” as a college instructor. They must have a Master’s degree in the subject area or related area. For example, a Mathematics instructor needs to have a Master’s degree in Mathematics or related area such as Engineering with 24 graduate credits in Math. The table below details the different criteria a Lower Division Transfer instructor would need to qualify. Lower Division Transfer • Master’s degree in a subject area • Master’s degree in related area plus 24 quarter hours graduate credits in related subject area A high school instructor may be provisionally approved if he/she meets the following criteria: Provisional Lower Division Transfer • Master’s degree in related area plus 12 quarter hours graduate credits in related subject area, and agreement to complete 12 additional credits within three years. Appropriate SWOCC department faculty will be consulted during this instructor certification process, and the appropriate subject area Dean and the VP of Instruction.


INSTRUCTOR APPROVAL PROCESS Before a high school instructor may teach a College Now course, he/she must go through the college approval process. This involves providing documentation that verifies he/she has the same education and training required of college instructors in the subject area. High school instructors wishing to be considered for the College Now program should first contact the High School Coordinator, Nathan Helland, at (541)888-7271 or nathan.helland@socc.edu or the Dean of Curry Campus, Janet Pretti at (541)813-1673 or jpretti@socc.edu. Dual Credit Instructor submits documentation consisting of: a. College Now Faculty Information Form (attached), b. Current resume or curriculum vitae, c. Unofficial transcripts from each institution showing specific degrees awarded / conferred or showing specific updated coursework relevant to the discipline and/or content area. If the instructor is a current College Now approved instructor, only updated or new transcripts and information needs to be submitted. Before a College Now instructor may teach a new course, his/her qualifications must by verified by SWOCC. d. The High School Coordinator will forward the packet to the Community and Workforce Development Director for screening. e. Applications from potential College Now instructors are reviewed by the appropriate SWOCC academic department faculty. f. All Dual Credit and Enhanced Option instructors must be approved by Southwestern’s Vice President of Instruction prior to the start of classes. The high school instructor member will then be notified by phone or email if they have been approved as a College Now instructor. Each new College Now instructor will be assigned a SWOCC WebAdvisor ID and an email address. How to set your forwarding options so that you receive your socc email is located on the SWOCC website. All Dual Credit instructors will be assignment Southwestern Collegiate Partner. The high school instructor member will then be notified by phone or email if they have been approved as a College Now instructor. Each new College Now instructor will be assigned a SWOCC WebAdvisor ID and an email address.

PROVISIONAL APPROVAL AGREEMENT A high school instructor may be considered for a “provisional” approval to teach a Dual Credit course through Southwestern if he/she meets certain requirements and agreements.

DUAL CREDIT INSTRUCTOR QUALIFICATIONS A high school teacher must be within 6-12 credits of obtaining a master’s degree, and/or the twenty-four (24) graduate credits, in the specific discipline and can complete the requirements within three (3) years or less. Provisional/conditional approval requires an agreement to be completed with administrator authorizing the provisional approval. The administrator specifies the classes or numbers of credits needed and the timeframe in which the work must be completed.

SWOCC PROVISIONALLY-APPROVED DUAL CREDIT INSTRUCTORS For high school instructors who have not completed a master’s degree or 24 graduate credits in a content area, but are within 6-12 credits of meeting that requirement, provisional college-approval may be granted using the following guidelines. 1.

2.

3.

If the individual high school instructor and high school principal believe an action plan to obtain the 6-12 (to equal the 24 graduate credits requisite) graduate credits can be attained in a 3-year period, provisional approval will be granted. A SWOCC full-time instructor in the content area will serve as instructor mentor and work closely with the high school instructor to ensure course requirements and learning outcomes are met during the instructor's action plan period. The SWOCC Office of Instruction will conduct an annual audit to determine if high school instructors on action plans are making incremental progress.

Instructors who fail to meet the action plan expectations will not be offered an opportunity to teach dual credit classes in the high school during the subsequent academic year.


HIGH SCHOOL RESPONSIBILITIES Both the high school and SWOCC benefit from partnering through the College Now program. Working together we aim to provide the students and instructors with the appropriate tools to become successful in the college setting or workforce setting.

ARTICULATION PROCESS The Articulation Agreement signifies the high school’s intent to provide a Dual Credit course or courses during an academic school year and should be processed during the previous Academic Year. The Articulation Agreement contains the SWOCC course name, course code and high school equivalent. Each instructor must sign the agreement acknowledging their commitment to teach the College Now course. It must also be signed by the high school principal. If a high school instructor is considering teaching a course that he/she has not been approved to teach, he/she must go through a separate course evaluation process. Instructors should contact Nathan Helland or Janet Preti and inform him/her of the proposed course. He/She will arrange a meeting with the Director of Workforce Development and a subject area specific SWOCC faculty member to discuss and go over the course proposal. The high school instructor member does not have to resubmit his/her official transcripts, as the documents are kept on file. The instructor must meet the same requirements for the new planned course. The high principal will complete the Articulation Agreement (see attached). The Agreement should be read carefully. Proposed courses should be listed on the form along with the corresponding SWOCC course name and information. A high school may only articulate courses that an instructor has been approved to teach. The principal must then sign the form and mail/fax it to address or fax number listed on the form. A copy will be returned to the principal once it has been signed by SWOCC personal and approved. Before teaching a course, the high school instructor must meet and correspond with his/her designated SWOCC college partner to ensure curriculum, grading, materials, and assessments are current for issuing college credit. The high school instructor and SWOCC faculty mentor must meet at least once per academic year.

THE HIGH SCHOOL & INSTRUCTOR     

Make available all necessary information and forms to students for the SWOCC Dual Credit program as supplied by SWOCC. Assist students with the Application and Registration process and procedures according to the appropriate deadlines outlined on the SWOCC Dual Credit Academic Calendar. Submit grades in WebAdvisor according to deadlines noted on the SWOCC Dual Credit Academic Calendar. See additional information under Grading. Meet on an annual basis with SWOCC department personnel. Provide access, accommodations, flexibility, and additional/supplemental services for special populations and protected classes of students.

STUDENT ELIGIBILITY It is the high schools responsibility to ensure that students enrolling in College Now Dual Credit courses meet the following criteria:  Must be at least 16 years of age.  Must fill out and submit the “High School New Student Record Form”  Must be a junior or senior in high school


SOUTHWESTERN OREGON COMMUNITY COLLEGE & THE SWOCC DUAL CREDIT PROGRAM        

The college will provide curriculum and assessment guidance through a formal agreement with high school partners Provide the high school teacher with materials necessary for registering and reporting grades Transcript college credit Provide an official transcript at student’s request Assist students and high school instructors with access to their accounts Facilitate meetings between high school instructors and departments Create, maintain, and make available copies of the articulation agreements Complete observations and assessment of the high school class to verify that course outcomes are being met

OBSERVATION & ASSESSMENT An important part of College Now success is providing high school Instructors teaching dual credit courses continuous collegial interaction with their SWOCC colleagues. This can take place through professional development, seminars, site visits, and ongoing communication by phone, email and in person. These interactions will address issues such as course content, course delivery, assessment, evaluation, and professional development in the field of study. SWOCC will provide high school instructors with training and orientation in course curriculum, assessment criteria, course philosophy, and dual credit administrative requirements. Each dual credit course will be observed and assessed regularly by a SWOCC instructor to verify that the course outcomes are being met. Every section of a course offered through dual credit will be regularly reviewed by faculty from that discipline and dual credit staff to assure that grading standards meet or exceed those in on-campus courses. Dual credit students must be assessed using similar methods (e.g. papers, portfolios, quizzes, labs, etc.) as their on-campus counterparts. The assigned Collegiate Partner will provide at a minimum:  Introductory meeting prior to the start of the academic year.  Contact information for resources.  One classroom visit/observation.  Review course syllabi, text books, assessments, grading.


COLLEGE NOW INSTRUCTOR RESPONSIBILITIES This section of the Guide covers the policies and tools provided to help instructors monitor course data as well as provide a description of the expectations SWOCC has for professional development.

SWOCC EMAIL AND WEBADVISOR High school instructors will be provided with a SWOCC ID as well as an email account. Using these services they can access class rosters and maintain effective communication with SWOCC. To eliminate the chore of checking multiple e-mail accounts, instructors may forward their email to another preferred email. Or it may be easier to set up a pop mail account so that your SWOCC email automatically downloads into your high school email. Speak with your school’s technology specialist for help.

SWOCC GRADING College Now instructors define grade standards for their courses in conformity with their SWOCC departmental policies. Grade definitions assume that instructors, knowing their course’s basic requirements, can determine when students meet or exceed them. Grades describe levels of achievement: A Excellent:

4 grade points

B Above Average:

3 grade points

C Average:

2 grade points

D Below Average:

1 grade point

F Failing:

0 grade points

Grades are assigned based on work completed at the end of the scheduled class time. Additional work or make-up after the ending date of the class is not justified unless an Incomplete was assigned. Pluses and minuses are NOT used.

COLLEGE VERSUS HIGH SCHOOL GRADES College Now instructors may choose to assign different grades for the high school course and the SWOCC course. Instructors should be guided by their school policies regarding advanced course grading for the high school grade.


COURSE MANAGEMENT The College Now office will contact instructors primarily through SWOCC email. The College Now office will send out reminders about significant events; however, this section of the guide—in print and on the College Now Web site— should minimize reliance on e-mail notification. Please be alert to messages that you may need to save and consult a few weeks later.

COURSE MANAGEMENT CHECKLIST Below is a list of the administrative steps instructors and liaisons take when conducting a College Now class. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

STUDENT REGISTRATION Each new College Now course will be assigned a unique course synonym. College Now instructors can access their own course synonym on WebAdvisor under “Class Schedule”. Once College Now Instructors have received the course synonym, the course ID number, and student ID information, College Now students may initiate the registration process themselves by completing the College Now registration through WebAdvisor. There is a step-by-step guide in the Teaching Information section of this document. Video tutorials are also available at the College Now web site. The High School Coordinator will help with the registration process for each College Now course. Instructors will need to give each student a copy of the College Now Student Manual and go over it with them. The College Now Student Manual will cover the registration process as well.
