Credential Program Admissions provides assistance with the process of your application for admission to the Multiple Subject, Single Subject and Special Education credential programs. Admission into these programs is initiated with the submission of a complete Program Admissions File (P.A.F.).
For further P.A.F. information, instructions and forms, please select the appropriate hyperlink program requirements from the list below:
Multiple Subject, Single Subject and Special Education Credential programs must attend a mandatory information session. Please see available dates and times on our Attend an Information Session page.
It is recommended that you submit your P.A.F. and other required documentation to Program Admissions in person. NOTE: Palm Desert Campus (PDC) credential candidates may submit their application(s) and/or official document(s) to the PDC Office to be forwarded to the College of Education Student Services. The admission process will take approximately 5 - 10 business days from the date the P.A.F. was accepted and results of the decision will be mailed to you.
NOTE: Once your P.A.F. has been submitted to Program Admissions, the contents cannot be retrieved or duplicated therefore we recommend that you keep copies of all documentation prior to submitting your P.A.F.
