TK-12 Education Trailer Bill (AB 130): Governor Newsom recently signed AB130 creating additional pathways for aspiring teachers to demonstrate they have met the Subject Matter and Basic Skills Requirements to begin a teacher preparation program (in lieu of taking the CBEST or CSET exams). To learn more about these changes please watch our latest Student forum posted on our IG Movies @csuf_cct.

Credential Program Applications: SPRING 2023: The subject matter competency requirement may be waived for admission purposes for spring 2023, however it must be completed by the end of the program in order to obtain a credential (please check with the program for additional details).   The basic skills requirement is NOT waived for admission for spring 2023. FALL 2024: The subject matter competency requirement and the basic skills requirement is NOT waived for admission for fall 2023.

For applicants who took the EDEL 315, EDSC 310 or SPED 425 course (or the equivalent) in Spring 2020, Fall 2020, or Spring 2021, the 45 hour fieldwork requirement is waived for admission purposes. If fieldwork hours were not completed when the course was taken, those hours will have to be completed during the credential program.
