Out of State Applicants
The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) is a State Agency responsible for many functions in California public education (K-12), including the establishment of requirements for credentials that authorize public school teaching and service; standards for subject matter programs; assessments of skill and knowledge; as well as the enforcement of professional practice standards.

For detailed information regarding California credentials, contact the Commission's Information Services Office between 8 am and 5 pm, Monday through Friday at (888) 921-2682 or via email at

Salary Placement

To receive credit for units, all college and university work must be submitted to the Division of Human Resources for consideration and approval. All units earned beyond the Bachelor's Degree must be upper division or graduate, unless approval has been granted to include a specific lower division course, or courses, prerequisite or otherwise essential to the teacher's program or post-baccalaureate studies. Lower division courses in Mathematics, Foreign Language and Physical Science not included in a teacher's undergraduate program may generally be considered an essential part of a teacher's program of improvement.

Years of Service Credit
Full credit is given for verified K-12 teaching experience (with credential).

Career Increment Service Credit
A maximum of five (5) years of credited service for career increment purposes will be granted for out-of-district service.
