ATC Approvals Frequently Asked Questions
5. Why is the ATC program requiring official transcripts?
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) considers secondary teachers that are teaching articulated courses as adjunct college faculty. Therefore, ATC approval is based on minimum SACS requirements to teach the college course to which the secondary course articulates and is not related to the State Board of Education (SBEC) approvals which are required to teach the secondary course on the high shool level. Securing official transcripts is a necessary step that the ATC program must take in order to assure participating colleges that secondary teachers that are teaching articulated courses meet the minimum SACS requirements. These transcrips will be scanned into the ATC database and shared with participating colleges on a need-to-know basis.
