HOW TO QUALIFY

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS FOR FACULTY/ADMINISTRATORS

See  2018 Minimum Qualifications Handbook for Faculty and Administrators in the California Community Colleges. (all applicants for academic service must meet the minimum qualifications for the discipline as specified). This resource is published by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges. Applicants who do not meet the minimum stated educational qualifications may apply for these instructional or educational administrative positions by requesting consideration based upon an assertion of "equivalence" through one or more categories described in the Supplemental Questions/Equivalency section of the online application. The information to the SRJC Faculty Equivalency Procedures can be found at  Board Policy 4.3.2bP.

EQUIVALENCY APPLICANTS

Candidates who are applying for classified, faculty and/or academic administrator positions, but do not meet the  minimum qualifications as stated in the job posting may still apply for the recruitment by filing for equivalency with the employment application. Applying on the basis of Equivalency is an option when an applicant feels they have a combination of education and/or experience that would be equivalent to the stated minimum qualifications. Equivalency candidates must complete and attach an Equivalency Application, along with supporting documentation, to their online employment application.

FOREIGN DEGREE HOLDERS

For positions requiring a degree, all foreign degree credentials must be evaluated by a third party to determine the equivalent U.S. degree and major, and the Foreign Credential Evaluation must be attached to your application before your application will be considered.

Note: Even if you obtained your graduate degree(s) in the U.S., you must attach a Foreign Credential Evaluation for your undergraduate degree if it was obtained outside the U.S.

The credential evaluation report submitted to SRJC should include the following information:

-Lower/upper division course recommendations
