    7. Two written recommendations from faculty members in the Department of Mathematics;
    8. Advising session with and signature of a Secondary Education Faculty member on an advising form or attendance at a program advisory meeting to determine requirements of the program;
    9. Completion of or concurrent enrollment in the upper-division writing requirement at the university or the equivalent graduation requirement at another accredited institution, or a score of 39 or better in the written portion of the CBEST (CBEST exam does not meet the graduate entrance writing requirement for the Master of Arts degree);
    10. In addition, the following criteria are considered: professional aptitude, personality and character, oral and written language usage, and interest in multicultural education;
    11. Submission of a Program Application File (PAF) to the Credentials Office, CE-102, at least one quarter prior to enrollment in Credential coursework.
  2. Requirements for admission to supervision:
    1. Demonstration of Subject Matter Competency in mathematics by having completed 80% of units in mathematics applicable to the B.A. in Mathematics, Integrated Teaching Track;
    2. A grade point average of 2.67 in all baccalaureate course work;
    3. Completion of ESEC 405, ESEC 407, and MATH 399;
    4. A grade point average of 3.0 ("B") in professional education course work with no course grade in this area lower than "B." Students can only discount one grade in the program courses. They can only repeat a total of two courses in the program.
  3. Additional requirements for the Single Subject Credential:
    1. Current or valid CPR certification that includes Infant, Child, and Adult.

Also, note the following:

  1. No candidate may be recommended for the credential who has received a grade less than "C" (2.0) in any other course required for the credential, such as health science courses.
  2. All course work taken at another institution, or more than seven years ago, is subject to approval by the Director of the Single Subject Program. No more than 14 quarter units of the credential program may be transferred. Student teaching is never transferable. Students transferring units from another institution may be required to take HSCI 100 and ESPE 350.
  3. Students who fail to successfully complete any program courses will be denied continuation in the program. An appeals process is available. Consult the Teacher Education Office for details.
