Evaluation & Certification


If there is not an identified need for your areas of interest within 12 months of applying you will receive a notification asking if you wish to remain in the applicant pool. If there is an identified need for faculty in your discipline, we will review the applicant pool and may contact you. At that time, 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. Confirm that you meet minimum qualifications requirements for teaching eligibility.  
  5. Send a Pima Community College Faculty Teaching Eligibility notice to you by email.
  6. Add your name to the adjunct faculty pool showing all disciplines for which you are certified.

Whom should I contact regarding my certification status? Contact the Faculty Qualifications & Hiring Office.

Teaching assignments

After I have received my notice of Teaching Eligibility, you may seek teaching assignments.

Teaching assignments are awarded based on your application form, resume, and any additional information acquired by department heads or lead faculty through personal interview, correspondence, and/or other selection method.

Use the Degrees & Certificates web site to contact the appropriate Division Dean to discuss potential adjunct faculty teaching assignments in your discipline(s) at any or all campuses. 

Job Offers and Required Paperwork: If you accept a job offer to teach a course, please contact the Faculty Qualifications & Hiring Office to complete new employee paperwork (immigration forms, tax withholding, background check, etc.) or other required forms. You must complete this step in order to receive an electronic teaching contract that includes the terms and conditions of your assignment with Pima Community College.
