All faculty, graduate students and staff teaching credit-bearing courses must submit an original, official copy of the highest earned degree (relevant to the subject being taught) to the hiring unit at the time of hire.
Submission of Transcripts
The terms of the university’s accreditation requires that it can produce documentation proving that instructors are suitably qualified to teach the fields and levels of the courses they have been assigned. In nearly all cases this documentation will take the form of transcripts.
Details of the obligations of both instructors and the hiring units are provided in University Policy 3005: Faculty Credential Evaluation and Documentation. The university’s requirements follow those of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
