Public school teaching and service credentials in California are regulated by the state legislature and administered by the State Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). Credential programs offered at CSULB have been developed to meet current requirements, which are complex and continually reviewed and changed by legislative and agency action. Candidates for all credentials must meet legal requirements in effect when completing credential programs. It is the responsibility of the candidate to be familiar with the program requirements. For information regarding admission, academic requirements, and fieldwork, contact the specific credential program coordinator. For information on state credential laws and regulations, pending changes, and new legislation, contact the Credential Center (ED1-42; 562/985-4109; firstname.lastname@example.org).
