How to Apply

Admissions Updates | August 20, 2020


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 prior to admission if possible. Note that any change to CBEST, CSET, and Pre-professional hours requirements is made at the state level, and at this time, the state has not yet made this determination. Until then, the regular admission requirements are in effect.

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.
