Application for admission to the Teacher Credential Program is normally submitted during the first semester of a student's senior year. Students must take and pass the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) and the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) before their first day of credential class (http://www.ctcexams.nesinc.com/). In addition, candidates must complete all of the prerequisite classes and pass with a B- or higher prior to admission into the credential program.
