About the Teacher Credential Program

The State approved Teacher Credential Program at SDCC offers an SB 2042 California Preliminary Credential for Multiple Subjects (elementary) or for Single Subjects (secondary). This is a quality program that offers small classes, individual attention and dedicated Christian professors. When all prerequisites have been met, the core credential program can be finished in less than a year.

Interested persons who already hold a BS/BA degree may apply directly for admittance to the program. Interested students who are currently enrolled at SDCC may apply to the Teacher Credential Program during their undergraduate programs. See the following links for more information:
