Admissions Updates | June 10, 2020

Due to COVID-19 - and the resulting school and testing center closures - the admissions requirements for Fall 2020 have been modified.

Note for Spring 2021 applicants:
At this time we cannot anticipate how Covid19 will affect applicants' ability to complete CSET and CBEST testing requirements and whether the deferral of these requirements from the point of admission to the point of applying for your preliminary credential will extend to Spring 2021 applicants state-wide. We urge you to complete these program requirements as soon as possible and prior to admission if possible.
We will update you on all Spring 2021 requirements through our "How to Apply" webpage as soon as we have further information from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
