Admission to Program

In addition to the general requirements of the university, specific requirements for admission to classified graduate status are:

  1. A valid basic California teaching credential or teaching experience;
  2. A cumulative grade point average of 3.0 ("B") in all courses taken in education;
  3. Completion of the graduate entrance writing requirement.
Students who do not meet these criteria may be admitted as conditionally classified graduate students. Students admitted in this category may be changed to classified standing with approval of the College of Education. No more than 16 quarter units may be used to demonstrate fitness to complete the program.
