Dual Enrollment Teacher Certification

Thank you for visiting the LSU College of the Coast and Environment‘s (CC&E) Dual Enrollment (DE) Teacher Certification website. CC&E is comprised of two departments, the Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences (DOCS) and the Department of Environmental Sciences (DES). Below you will find all the important information regarding our free Dual Enrollment Teacher Certification program which is part of the LSU College Readiness initiative.

In order for a high school to offer a CC&E dual enrollment opportunity, the teacher assigned to teach the high school course must participate in an initial professional development workshop.  This workshop includes two summer sessions at LSU and at least 15 additional hours of independent work between the two workshop sessions.  There is no fee for participation in the workshop for dual enrollment teachers. The trained high school College Readiness Program dual enrollment (DE) teacher serves as the classroom facilitator in the high school setting.  The Instructor of Record (IoR) is an LSU Environmental Science or Oceanography department faculty member who oversees all aspects of the course being taught.


All teachers that plan to be a facilitator of any CC&E DE course must complete a one-time certification workshop series for each course being taught. This is mandatory to receive certification from our college. We will meet the Monday and Tuesday of the second week of June to go over all of the basic information for the course as well as all dual enrollment policies and procedures. Part one of the workshop series will initiate the certification process, which includes going through all homework and quiz material. All lecture notes and pertinent information will be made available to those in attendance.  Part two of the summer workshop series will be held on the Monday and Tuesday of the last week of June. During this time we will finalize your DE Certification by having you complete the course midterm and final.

*NOTE* This is only required the first time you plan to teach a dual enrollment course and will serve as your certification exam.


Please have all your prospective ENVS facilitators complete and the scan this document back to me no later than Friday May 10th, 2019
