Preliminary Multiple Subject Teacher Preparation Program (MS)

Preliminary Multiple Subject Credential

The Preliminary Multiple Subject Credential authorizes the holder to teach in a self-contained classroom such as classrooms in most elementary schools. However, a teacher authorized for multiple subject instruction may be assigned to teach in any self-contained classroom (preschool, K-6, or in classes organized primarily for adults). In addition, the holder of a Preliminary Multiple Subject Teaching Credential may serve in a core or team teaching setting.

The Preliminary Multiple Subject Credential authorizes candidates to seek initial employment as a multiple subject (elementary) teacher, but does not authorize ongoing teaching service. Candidates will need to complete professional preparation within five years of the date of issuance of the preliminary credential in order to continue ongoing teaching service as an educator. In order to complete the professional credential, candidates are required to enroll in a commission-accredited Professional Clear Teacher Induction Program.
