Following Program Completion
If you do not anticipate accepting or applying for an administrative position in the near future, you should apply for a "Certificate of Eligibility" instead of the actual credential document. The "Certificate" verifies that you are academically qualified for the Preliminary Services Credential and carries NO expiration date. When you accept employment as an administrator, simply apply for the 5-year Preliminary Administrative Services Credential through the CSU Stanislaus Credentials Office.
Application information is available at the Credentials Office website.
