Become an Instructor
Indiana State University is always welcoming new instructors to the College Challenge program. If you are a high school educator who is interested in establishing a partnership with Indiana State University and offering College Challenge courses at your local high school, then we strongly encourage you to apply to the program.
You can begin the enrollment process by completing the following steps:
Complete and return the Participation Agreement, Memorandum of Understanding, and Teacher Application to the College Challenge Director at the following address:
College Challenge Program
Indiana State University
134E Tirey Hall
Terre Haute, Indiana 47809
- Memorandum of Understanding (PDF): To be signed by high school officer, assistance principal, or guidance director
- Teacher Application to Teach College Challenge Courses: To be completed by high school teachers after their high school has submitted the appropriate partnership paperwork (documents 1 & 2 above).
- Lecturer Levels with Descriptions (PDF): This document explains the three levels of lecturer that may be approved to teach a College Challenge course. Please be aware that not all lecturer levels are available in every discipline, and decisions regarding a high school teacher’s eligibility to teach college-level courses within the discipline are made by the academic department. College Challenge teachers must have credentials consistent with instructors teaching the same course on the ISU campus.
Once an application file is complete, the College Challenge Director will forward the file to the appropriate academic liaison within the discipline for a review and decision regard the potential partnership. The liaison will contact the teacher with any questions during the review process.
Once a decision is made, the College Challenge Director will notify the school and teacher in writing of approval or denial. If denied, the teacher will receive information regarding the reason for denial. If approved, the teacher will be notified of next steps for teacher orientation, which must be completed before the partnership can take effect.
