After Completing the Program
Celebrate with Family and Friends at the Credentials Ceremony
You don’t have to do anything to sign up to participate in the Credentials Ceremony; your corresponding department will tentatively place your name in the Credentials Ceremony program, provided you are enrolled in a full time student teaching course or intern teaching course; invitations to the ceremony will be distributed during the student teaching courses by your corresponding supervisor.
Once all names are in the program, the student teaching supervisors review it to make sure those who are listed will satisfactorily complete student teaching; any students who won’t be completing, will be removed from the credential ceremony program.
Should you have questions about whether or not you will complete student teaching satisfactorily, please contact your student teaching supervisor.
If you participate in the Credentials Ceremony (provided your student teaching supervisor confirms you are indeed completing the program), you will receive a lovely Certificate of Achievement that is prepared by the School of Education.
PLEASE NOTE: This certificate is not to be used for employment purposes; you will need to file the appropriate paperwork and fees with the Credentials Office in order to be recommended to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for a teaching credential; review of the paperwork and fees will take place as part of your student teaching seminar
