Professional Level II preparation is intended to enable new teachers to apply their Preliminary Level I preparation to the demands of professional positions while fostering advanced skills and knowledge. The Professional Level II Education Specialist Credential Programs in Mild/Moderate Disabilities and Moderate/Severe Disabilities include academic requirements, an individualized induction plan, and an option allowing some requirements to be met with non-university activities.
In addition to meeting the regular standards for admission to graduate study at CSU Stanislaus, students applying to the Professional Level II Education Specialist Credential Program must submit proof of a valid Preliminary Level I Education Specialist Credential, and a GPA of at least 3.0 in the last 60 units of college/university work. Applicants must verify full-time employment in a position requiring the Preliminary Level I Education Specialist Credential. Applications to the Level II program are available online at www.csustan.edu or in the Advanced Studies office.
