of means. Certain combinations of education, experience and other

section, this candidate MUST complete the Supplemental

titles that are not an exact match will not be considered outside
of the equivalency process.
The equivalency review is an independent process for district wide
disciplines that is separate from the recruitment process to fill a
vacancy. A subcommittee of discipline experts that is coordinated
by an Academic Senate President will review the equivalency
materials and make a recommendation as to whether or not the
applicant demonstrated they have qualifications that are equivalent
to those shown in the minimum qualifications section of the job
posting. For disciplines that are unique to a specific campus the
equivalency may be done by the hiring committee along with an
Academic Senate President. Please be aware that the hiring
committee may not be able to wait for the results from the
equivalency review due to various time constraints and may need to
move forward with the recruitment process.
For further details regarding equivalency and the criteria by
which equivalency may be granted, please review VCCCD Board Policy 7211 and
VCCCD Administrative Policy
