To ensure that community colleges are hiring top-quality instructors, the State Chancellor's Office, in conjunction with the State Legislature, have specified a minimum set of qualifications for open positions. The Minimum Qualifications for Faculty and Administrators in California Community Colleges is available here.
If you are interested in teaching for the North Orange County Community College District you should review this material to make sure you have the required minimum qualifications. Applicants who have equivalent qualifications must upload an Equivalency Application Form along with supporting documents as part of their application. This information also applies to certain administrative positions in the District.
All professional course work and degrees used to satisfy the minimum qualifications shall be from institutions, which are accredited and listed annually in the catalog of Accredited Institutions of Postsecondary Education for the Council of Postsecondary Accreditation by the American Council on Education. Determination of equivalency of foreign degrees shall be according to the District's equivalency requirements and procedure.
Applicants who have completed college or university course work at an institution from a country other than the United States, including Canada and Great Britian, must have their transcripts evaluated. The NOCCCD only recognizes evaluations from organizations who are members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), which is an association of private educational credential evaluation services committed to formulating and maintaining ethical standards in the field of foreign educational evaluation. Visit the NACES website at www.naces.org to obtain a listing of member evaluation services.
