Establishing an ISU Course

The appropriate academic departments must annually approve all Idaho State University courses offered on a high school campus. In order for high school instructors to be considered for ISU adjunct/affiliate faculty status they must hold a master's degree in the subject area and submit an Early College Program High school Adjunct and Course Request Form to the Early College Program Office. A course request application is considered complete when accompanied by the following:


  • Course Request Form (with signature from building principal)
  • Current Resume' or Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal Teaching Philosophy Statement (College Level Instruction)
  • Letter(s) of Recommendation (The English Department requires 3 letters)
  • Transcripts (unofficial are OK until approved, then official needed)


Upon approval, instructors will work with departments to develop an approved syllabus and review textbook(s) guidelines.
