Intern Administrative Services Credential

The Preliminary Administrative Services Credential (Internship) Program allows school districts to appoint persons to administrative positions before they have completed the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential Program. The Internship shall be for at least one semester. The intern is supervised by both the University staff and the school district of employment and continues the course work at University as required for the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential. The Internship credential is usually issued for a two year period; thus the intern must complete the approved institutional program within a two year period or the period authorized by the credential.
