The Credential Processing Center (CPC) in the College of Education serves as the campus liaison to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) and handles education credential matters. The CPC disseminates credential information,  including requirements and regulations, to campus staff, faculty, students, prospective candidates, and the general public. Individuals from out-of-state or out-of-country are advised in the CPC. Credentialed teachers may also obtain up-to-date renewal information at the CPC.

The CPC evaluates applications for the Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Education Specialist credential programs. The CPC verifies Subject Matter Preparation Programs (waiver) for students who will attend another institution to complete their credential program. The CPC evaluates, verifies, and recommends to the Commission all basic multiple, single subject, and education specialist teaching credentials and all professional clear, advanced, and services credentials.

The CCTC has approved the University’s programs leading to the credentials listed in the following section. For specific and current information on these credentials, please contact the identified department office.
