Credential Programs

Deciding which credential programs are the "right fit" for you will likely take some exploration as there are many factors to consider. Most universities and colleges in California offer a credentialing program, and you will find many similarities, and differences, between the programs. Factors that many students consider include the cost of tuition, the focus/emphasis of the program, the size of the program, the location of the program, the availability of the program, and whether the program is a "credential only" or a "Masters and Credential" program.

To best explore your options, we recommend that students first research the various programs online. We also recommend that students visit the school and talk with both current students and administrators. You are welcome to make an appointment to talk with us as you explore your options.

Below are inks to Credential and M.Ed. Programs at California State universities, University of California universities and some private schools.
