Advanced Credential and Certificate Programs
The programs and services offered in the Advanced Educational Studies department are designed to prepare teachers, administrators and counselors for degree and specific credentials required in the State of California for service in specialist and administrative positions that require advanced preparation and special competence. These programs also provide in-service educational opportunities for persons currently filling such positions. The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC), as authorized by the Teacher Preparation and Licensing Law of 1970, has approved these specialist and advanced services credentials. The Advanced Educational Studies offers the following advanced services and specialists credential programs:
• Administrative Services Credentials: Preliminary and Professional Clear
• Pupil Personnel Services Credential
Administrative Services Credentials: Preliminary and Professional Clear
The Preliminary Administrative Services Credential authorizes service as a superintendent, associate superintendent, deputy superintendent, principal, assistant principal, supervisor, consultant, coordinator or any equivalent or intermediate level administrative position.
Effective May 1, 1994, employment in an administrative position is required prior to the issuance of the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential. (The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing [CCTC] will issue a Certificate of Eligibility for the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential to individuals who complete a college or university program but are not yet employed in an administrative position.) Further, employment in an administrative position is required before admittance to the Professional Administrative Services Credential program.

Administrative Intern Program
The Intern Program has as its primary purpose the preparation of school teachers to become school administrators while they serve a school district in an administrative role. Those admitted to the Internship Program will be required to verify that they have a minimum of three years of successful full-time teaching or services (as defined in the Education Code) prior to assuming internship administrative responsibilities.
All interns will be supervised by both a faculty mentor and a district mentor. All cooperating school districts must agree that no intern’s salary will be reduced by more than 1/8 of its total to pay for supervision, and the salary of the intern shall not be less than the minimum base salary paid to a regularly certificated person. All cooperating school districts will be required to certify that interns do not displace certificated employees in participating districts.
The intern takes all of the same courses as in the regular program for the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential except he/she enrolls in the ED-AD 580-585 sequence rather than ED-CA 693-694 Fieldwork courses. A minimum for 6 units of Internship is required, and additional units may be required by the intern’s advisor.
Before the intern assumes intern responsibilities ED-AD 580 will meet, providing the intern with an orientation to job responsibilities, and conceptual awareness of the essential themes, concepts and skills related to the performance of administrative services. While differing from the fieldwork in the sense of developing projects based on part-time administrative support, the intern will perform real administrative duties and do readings and reflective writings relating to that meld of theory and practice. A yearly project that develops an increasingly professional perspective will be completed. Such a project might be a faculty handbook, curriculum alignment, in-service plan, or similarly needed administrative project within the position the intern fills.
During the internship, the district will provide the intern with a brief experience working at a different level, so the intern will have another setting to reflect upon. For example, an administrative intern at the elementary level might be given an opportunity to spend a week or more working as an administrator in a junior high. Or, as another example, interns from a high school district might have an assignment to work with articulation between their high school and feeder schools. Within all internships, efforts will be made to assure interns gain experience in multi-cultural settings. Although interns satisfy their requirements in a different way, they still are required to document experience in the ten competency areas: educational leadership, organizational management, improvement of the instructional program, management of schools, human resource administration, fiscal resource and business service administration, legal and regulatory applications, policy and political influences, school and community collaborations, and use of technology.
Requirements for the Professional Administrative Services Credential
1. Possession of a valid Preliminary Administrative Services Credential or an equivalent program at an accredited out-of-state institution.
2. Verification of an administrative position requiring a Preliminary Administrative Services Credential
3. 3.00 or better GPA in all college course work.
A minimum of two (2) years of successful full-time administrative. The end of the program requires experience.

Bilingual/Multicultural: Certificate Program
The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) has approved the following certificate program. Information regarding this program may be obtained from program advisors.
Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development Certificate (CLAD)
The Bilingual/Multicultural program has an approved CLAD certificate program. The program addresses second language acquisition methods and skills in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL). Candidates are introduced to current theories and practices of second language acquisition and bilingual/multicultural teaching strategies. The CLAD certificate authorizes the holder to provide English language instruction to English Language Learners (ELL), formerly called Limited English Proficient (LEP) students in the K-12 setting.
Requirements for the CLAD Certificate
Note: Eighteen (18) quarter units are required for the CLAD Certificate.
A valid basic California teaching credential.

3. EDBI 524 Techniques and Methods of Teaching English as a Second Language (5)
4. EDBI 543 Practicum in an English as a Second Language Classroom (5)
Second Language Requirement:
As a result of new legislation, the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) no longer requires completion of second language coursework. The only requirement in this area remains for the BA degree.
Pupil Personnel Services Credential
Students with a master’s degree or doctorate in Counseling may seek the addition of the Pupil Personnel Services Credential (School Counseling endorsement) by an application process similar to the Master of Science in Counseling. In consultation with the Program Coordinator, a Program of Study will be developed.
The Pupil Personnel Services Credential (School Counseling endorsement) authorizes the holder to perform at the K-12 levels as prescribed by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC). A total of 72 quarter units must be completed in the courses listed below.
The Counseling Program admits post-masters, “credential only” students once a quarter during the academic year, with the following deadlines for completed files to be submitted to the Office of the Graduate Studies Evaluator (Education Building 235; 661/664-3160): October 15 (for Winter Quarter); February 15 (for Spring Quarter); and April 15 (for Fall Quarter). Prior to formal admission to the Counseling Program, students may enroll in EDCS 540, Introduction to Counseling, as an unclassified graduate student.
To pursue the post-masters Pupil Personnel Services Credential the applicant must first apply to the Office of Admissions and Records, CSUB (661/664-3036), designating the appropriate code for Pupil Personnel Services (800). Following admission to the University, the applicant is to contact the Department of Advanced Educational Studies Office (Education Building 238; 661/664-3055) for a brochure and application to the Pupil Personnel Services Program. The completed application is to be returned to the Office of the Graduate Studies Evaluator (Education Building 235; 661/664-3160) for review. The Program Admissions Committee will certify admission or non-admission to the “Credential Only” Program only after admission to the University has been established. Applicants will be notified in writing of actions regarding admission taken by the Committee.
Only complete application files will be considered. It is the responsibility of the applicant to make certain that the application file is complete and contains the following information:
1. Transcripts from all previous graduate study (photocopies acceptable);
2. Counseling Program Application (including autobiography and other documents);
3. Letter of Admission to CSUB Graduate School (photocopy) from the Admissions Office;
4. CBEST Score Report (photocopy);
5. Certificate of Clearance (photocopy).
Information regarding the CBEST (California Basic Educational Skills Test) and the Certificate of Clearance may be obtained from the Credentials Office (Education Building 102; 661/664-2484).
Please note that the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not currently required for application to the CSUB Counseling Program. Also, please not that only a previous graduate degree in “Counseling” is recognized for “Credential Only” status. Previous coursework will be accepted in lieu of required courses only when the previous coursework is demonstrated to have an “educational counseling” focus.
After Admission: Advancement Steps Toward
Once an applicant is admitted, additional steps must be achieved to successfully matriculate toward the Credential.
1. Ability to Work with People Effectively – Throughout the Counseling Program and prior to completion, the student must continually provide evidence of the ability to interact competently, successfully and ethically with other people from a variety of backgrounds in a manner consistent with the role of a professional person in counseling. Such evidence may come from Practicum and techniques courses, courses with an experiential focus, or from the supervised Intern experiences in the Program. The student is advised that this quality is difficult to evaluate prior to admission; it may become apparent only as the student progresses through the Program. The applicant who recognizes that these skills may be significantly difficult to achieve is urged to consider other career options. The faculty reserves the right to deny approval for Internship to students who do not demonstrate the ability to work with people effectively as described above.
2. Internship Application – A student must submit a completed “Application for Internship” form to the Internship Coordinator midway through the quarter prior to each quarter in which Internship credit is desired.
