Credential Information Meetings are available throughout the year:
Applicants to a Credential Program are recommended to attend an Information Meeting, which provides information regarding prerequisites, requirements for admission, instructions for completing the application process, and the structure of the Credential Programs. Applicants should attend an information meeting as soon as possible since it may take one year to complete the state and university prerequisites required for admission to the program. Please click the link for Teacher Education Program Info Meetings or School Psychology Program Info Meetings to view the current schedules, or contact the Credential Services Office at (805) 893-2036.
Applicants who cannot attend one of the Credential Information Meetings should contact the Credential Services Office at (805) 893-2036 for advisement regarding program prerequisites and the application process. Advisors are available to answer your questions on a walk-in basis, by appointment, or by telephone (805) 893-2084 or 2036.
