Adjunct Faculty Hiring Guidelines

We recruit adjunct faculty from a variety of sources, such as personal referrals, college and district adjunct faculty recruitment fairs, and our adjunct faculty database. Some adjunct instructor opportunities can be found listed in our current job openings

You can become a DCCCD adjunct instructor (part-time faculty member) even if you have no prior teaching experience. The program provides an excellent opportunity to gain hours in the classroom.

Requirements for adjunct instructors (part-time faculty members) vary depending on the type of course taught:
  • for classes transferrable for a higher degree: a master’s degree plus 18 graduate hours in the subject to be taught
  • for workforce education degree or certificate courses: a combination of academic preparation and work experience, including three years of direct or related work experience other than teaching
  • for developmental courses: a bachelor’s degree in the specific teaching discipline and demonstrated competency (i.e., teaching experience, honors, graduate course work or other related accomplishment)
