Required Education and Experience:

  • Minimum Bachelor’s degree conferred
  • Teaching experience in TESOL, ESL, or related field
  • Please attach conferred unofficial transcripts and/or credential evaluations.
  • Experience teaching adult learners preferred
  • Local applicants with individual logistical support (ILS) only. Applicants must already have and be able to maintain ILS, meaning that they must possess a U.S. military ID card and SOFA from an external source, as this position does not offer ILS.

Materials needed for submission:

  • Resume/ Curriculum Vitae
  • Cover letter highly preferred
  • Unofficial transcripts for all conferred degrees with conferral date (or credential evaluations)
  • Two professional/academic references with email addresses and phone numbers
  • Part of the selection process includes providing official transcripts.
    •  If your degrees were earned from an institution(s) outside the US: UMUC requires a 3rd party credit evaluation from a NACES approved vendor (http://www.naces.org/)
    • If an unofficial copy of the evaluation is submitted to UMUC, then the official transcript(s) would still be required.

Who We Are and Who We Serve

UMUC—one of 12 degree-granting institutions in the University System of Maryland (USM)—is a mission-driven institution with seven core values that guide us in all we do. At the top of the list is "Students First,” and we strive to do just that for our 90,000 students at home and abroad. From its start in 1947, UMUC has demonstrated its commitment to adult learners. We recognize that adult students need flexibility and options. UMUC is proud to be a global, 24-hour, institution of higher learning.

The typical UMUC student is an adult learner juggling a career, family, and other priorities. Roughly 80% work full time, half are parents, and half are minority students. They are continuing their education to better themselves, their families, and their professional opportunities. UMUC is also a leading higher education provider to the U.S. military, enrolling 55,000 active-duty service members, reservists, National Guard members, veterans, and family members annually. We are proud of our military heritage and are committed to this service.
