Fieldwork Clearance

SERVE, Clinical I, II, and III fieldwork opportunities all take place at a school site or facility with minors, therefore all students are required to obtain clearance from the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and provide a negative TB test result prior to placement.

All students completing fieldwork associated with a CSULB course or credential program must have a valid Certificate of Clearance and TB Test prior to requesting a fieldwork placement with a partnering school district. Candidates seeking a fieldwork placement in LBUSD must follow the steps below in addition to obtaining a Certificate of Clearance and TB Test to receive district level clearance before being placed.
