Single Subject Credential Information Meeting

A Single Subject Credential allows one to teach in CA public schools at the middle and/or high school level. Learn more about earning this credential and becoming a middle school/high school teacher by attending an information meeting. The meeting will provide you with an overview of the Single Subject Credential Program (SSCP), admission requirements, coursework, and advisor contact information.

We highly recommend that you attend the Single Subject Credential Information Meetings. There is a meeting generally once a month.
