Important Announcement

The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) recently announced that the Basic Skills Requirement (BSR), which is most often met through the CBEST exam, may now be met by Commission-approved coursework. If you are interested in having your courses reviewed by a Credential Analyst for this option you MUST submit a Basic Skills Requirement (BSR) Form to credentials@csustan.edu by or before Friday, October 8, 2021 for Spring 2022 Student Teaching consideration. They will confirm if you met this requirement through coursework or not.

**The BSR Form should only be completed and submitted by students who have not fully completed and passed the Basic Skills Requirement. Any student that has already completed this requiement through the CBEST exam and has sent in passing results for all sections should not send in a BSR Form.**

BSR Form

We are still pending direction from CCTC regarding fulfilling Subject Matter Competency (SMC) through Commission-approved coursework. So as of now, the ESCP will allow students to meet SMC through one of the following options: ESM Waivers; pass at least TWO CSETs in content area; or have an authorized bachelor's degree that matches content area.
