Benefits of Credentialing

Earning dual-credit teaching credentials offers the opportunity to:

  • Increase your earning potential.
  • Grow professionally.
  • Enhance your pedagogical skills.
  • Positively impact students and communities.
  • Advance your career.

Get Started!


To receive dual-credit teaching credentials, you must have a master’s degree or doctorate in any discipline and 18 graduate credit hours in the discipline of the dual-credit course being taught.

Here’s how

  1. If you already have a graduate degree but need some or all of the 18 hours of content-specific courses, you may take those classes through the A&M-Commerce Graduate School. Contact [email protected] for more information.
  2. You can earn a Master of Science degree in Higher Education with an emphasis in Higher Education Teaching, and the 18 content hours can count toward your degree.
  3. You can earn a Master of Education or a Master of Science in Secondary Education, and the 18 content hours can count toward your degree.
  4. Earn a master’s degree in the discipline you wish to teach as a dual-credit course.
