Due to the situation surrounding COVID-19, our office is physically closed. However, we are still available to answer questions and support you from Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM. For all questions and concerns, please contact us at lecollins@fullerton.edu or call us at                (657) 278-7769.

Due to the COVID 19 crisis, we understand students may have difficulty completing the admissions requirements for our fall 2021 credential programs. We want to encourage you to apply to our programs regardless and have developed the following procedures as temporary solutions to barriers you may encounter:
  • CBEST and CSET cancelled exams and Certificate of Clearance: if you are applying for fall 2021 and have not been able to complete these requirements, please continue to turn in all other application materials and we will continue to process your application. Our admission staff will communicate how requirements are being modified to accommodate applicants during this time.
  • Completing fieldwork experience in pre-requisite courses: Students who completed a course in fall 2020 or are enrolled in a spring 2021 prerequisite course that has a fieldwork/school observation requirement will not be held to the full required hours for admission purposes.  This will also apply to students who are completing these requirements with articulated courses at community colleges.
Please contact us if you have any questions regarding these updates. We are here to support you.
