IU Receives Grants to Help High School Educators Teach Dual-Credit Courses

(BLOOMINGTON) – IU was awarded three grants of more than $1.5 million to improve dual-credit programs among high school teachers in Indiana and surrounding states.

The Higher Learning Commission will require teachers to complete their master’s degree with at least 18 credit hours in the course they teach. The grants from the Indiana Department of Education and the Indiana Commission for Higher Education allow dual-credit teachers to acquire scholarships for graduate courses at IU.

According to a survey by Sondhi Solutions, 87 percent agree that IU master’s courses have added to their knowledge of the dual-credit subjects they teach high schoolers. All dual-credit instructors will be required to have their master’s degree starting in 2022.
