Complete the application, the required attachments and purchase the certified check, as described in the directions included in the application. Submit your application to the Student Services office, located in the College of Education Building, Room 102 at least 5 weeks before the end of your last semester.

This is the letter you need to apply for positions or verify completion of the preliminary administrative services credential.
