Adding an Additional Credential

Adding another Single Subject Credential to an Existing Single Subject Credential

According to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC), Single Subject teachers who are seeking to add an additional subject area onto their existing Single Subject Credential will need to have met subject-matter competence by coursework or passing all parts of the subject-specific CSET exams and have a Single Subject pedagogy course (EDSS 450) in the area in which they are seeking to add.

1) Bring the following items to the Subject Area Coordinator for permission to take the course:

If the Subject Area Coordinator grants you permission they will sign your form.

2) Bring the signed Request to Enroll in a Methods Course to Add a Credential form with a copy of your credential and proof of subject matter competency to EED-67.  A Blue Card will be issued to you and shows that you have received department permission to enroll. Take your card to the first day of instruction to ask to be added if there is space available in the course. Please note that priority is given to students that are admitted to the program.  Register for class after you have received full permission. If you are not a current CSULB student you will need to enroll in the course through Open University (www.ccpe.csulb.edu/openuniversity).

3) Apply directly to the state for the authorization to be added to your credential (http://www.ctc.ca.gov/credentials/leaflets/414.pdf).
