Credential/License From Another State
If you hold a teaching credential from another state, you can apply for a preliminary credential
in the same subject area. Requirements for obtaining a clear credential will be determined by the number
of years of satisfactory, full-time teaching experience you have.
NOTE: All documentation should be submitted to the
Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
If you have National Board Certification, you can obtain a California clear
credential in the subject area in which you have received certification.
