SACS Faculty Qualifications

Kennesaw State University expects all faculty teaching undergraduate and/or graduate courses to meet the expectations outlined in the SACSCOC Faculty Crendentials Guidelines.  To facilitate the review and approval process, the forms or documents below are intended to assist Department Chairs through the process to submit revisions to the course correlations or submit faculty justifications. 

SACSCOC Faculty Credentials Guidelines

This document links to the SACSCOC Faculty Credentials Guidelines that identify and explain the expectations for faculty to be academically qualified to teach courses.

Course Correlations

Each department in consultation with the program faculty identify what degrees and majors are appropriate to teach the content for each course. These course correlations are then used to determine if a faculty member is academically qualified to teach a course. Department Chairs have access to the shared Course Correlations for the courses assigned to their department. If you need access to a Course Correlations tables, please contact the department chair or Leigh Funk.

SACS Faculty Justification Form

If you wish to assign a faculty member to teach a course for which they are not academically qualified based on the Course Correlations tables, please submit this SACS Faculty Justification Form at least two weeks before the beginning of the semester for which they will be scheduled to teach the course.
