After completing a pilot with two schools, Truman is excited to roll-out Dual Credit Calculus to additional Missouri schools.
MATH 198 – Analytic Geometry and Calculus I (5 credits)
MATH 263 – Analytic Geometry and Calculus II (5 credits)
Faculty Eligibility Requirements
The Higher Learning Commission (regional accreditation body) and the Missouri Department of Higher Education require dual credit faculty to meet the eligibility standards of regular adjunct faculty. This requires that the high school teacher hold a minimum of a Master’s Degree and have at least 18 graduate hours in mathematics coursework (either as part of the Master’s, in addition to it, or a combination thereof). Truman is not eligible to hire faculty provisionally while these credits are completed. Additionally, the Truman Math Department requires all instructors for Calculus I & II to have completed MATH 461 – Advanced Calculus. Faculty who are not Truman graduates must demonstrate completion of the equivalent coursework as part of their own degree program.
Dual Credit faculty are required to adopt the textbook used on campus, employ the same syllabus, and administer the same assignments and assessments. The model syllabi for these courses are linked below.
Courses may be offered in single semester or full year configurations.
Students pay $85 per credit hour in tuition to Truman. If their local school does not purchase the required textbook, students may be obligated to the purchase of the textbook. Dual credit students do not pay any additional fees.
Faculty Pay and Benefits
Faculty are compensated on a per student basis according to the degree held, the length of the course (semester or year-long), and the number of credit hours awarded. For a 5-semester hour course, a Master’s Degree-holding teacher earns $40 per student. For a 5-semester hour year-long course, the teacher earns $65 per student.
Faculty are also eligible for a 3-credit graduate tuition waiver if they wish to take a professional development course on Truman’s campus, or online, during the academic year following their teaching.
