New Teacher Application

Interested in applying to teach in the concurrent enrollment program? Each applicant is considered independently, but a minimum of a master's degree with 16 graduate credits in the specific field you want to teach is preferred. Undergraduate credits, teaching experience and other relevant experience are also considered, and waivers may be granted for those actively working to complete graduate credits.

Applications must include:

  • A letter of recommendation from your high school principal
  • A letter of application from you (the teacher) with a summary of qualifications
  • Your resume
  • Official undergraduate and graduate transcripts

Completed applications can be sent to: M State, 1414 College Way, Fergus Falls, MN 56537, Attn: Katie Tysdal


Teacher/Mentor Meeting and Observations

For a new class, new instructor or new mentor, six meetings are required. At least one planning meeting between the mentor and high school instructor (which includes new instructor orientation) must occur prior to the start of the semester. At least two in-person classroom observations will occur and one follow-up meeting. Mentors will record their observations and recommendations, which are submitted and reviewed by M State's associate vice president (AVP).

Repeat course offerings with the same instructor and mentor are required to have three meetings. At least one of these meetings will be a classroom observation.

Upon request, high school teachers can be provided feedback from their mentor reports.
