Information on application to basic credential programs is available in the Teacher Preparation Advising Center (ED1-67; 562/985-1105). Students currently not enrolled in the University must file an application for admission to the University (www.csumentor.edu) as well as an application to the specific program. Note: Some programs have established application periods each year that are separate from the University application periods and process.
Candidates for student teaching for the summer or fall term of any year must apply by March 1. Spring candidates must apply by October 1. Student Teaching application deadlines are firm.
Candidates for student teaching must attend a Student Teaching Application Meeting which is the only venue for distributing applications. Dates and times for each application period are posted on bulletin boards and program websites.
