Certification Process

Once you have submitted your completed application packet for part-time teaching as an adjunct faculty member, your file will be assigned to a Certification Analyst who will perform the following steps:

  1. Review your application packet and confirm that your degrees are from regionally accredited institutions.
  2. Notify you if any additional documentation is required.
  3. Evaluate your transcripts and supporting documents against qualifications requirements. 
  4. Obtain Provost's Office approval of certification evaluation.  
  5. Send a Pima Community College Faculty Standards Teaching Certificate to you by mail.
  6. Add your name to the adjunct faculty pool showing all disciplines for which you are certified.

Currently, due to a College-wide re-certification project, new certification may take several months.

Whom should I contact regarding my certification status? Contact the Faculty Certification Office.
