Faculty Credential Inventory (FCI) Guidelines


 SACSCOC Faculty Credential Guidelines:

In order to demonstrate compliance with Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) faculty credential guidelines, Collin College must document and justify that each faculty member is qualified to teach all assigned courses by providing a thorough justification that demonstrates the linkage between the various qualifications and the courses being taught.  Transcripts and credential documentation must demonstrate compliance with SACSCOC as follows:

  • Faculty teaching associate degree courses designated to transfer to a baccalaureate degree: doctorate or master's degree in the teaching discipline or master's degree with a concentration in the teaching discipline (a minimum of 18 graduate semester hours in the teaching discipline)

  • Faculty teaching associate degree courses not designated for transfer to the baccalaureate degree: bachelor's degree in the teaching discipline, or associate's degree and demonstrated competencies in the teaching discipline.

The Collin College Faculty Credential Inventory (FCI) System is used to document the credentials and qualifications of all faculty members.
