Clear Credential - Multiple & Single Subject

This three semester program is for candidates who have completed their preliminary multiple or single subject credential and need to fulfill the requirement for their clear credential. If the district in which the candidate is hired has an approved induction program, they must clear their credential through their district. If the district in which the candidate works cannot service them or if they are hired by a private school, charter school, home school consortium or the prison system, they are eligible to clear their credential with this program.

Students enrolling in online courses are responsible to meet system requirements.

A CPR certificate (infant, child and adult) is required in order to receive your credential. The certificate must be valid at the time the student is finished with the clear credential coursework.

In order to receive your credential after you have completed the coursework, the credential analyst in the School of Education will recommend you for the credential. All you need to do is complete a simple application and submit your valid CPR certificate if you haven’t already.
