Preliminary Single Subject Teacher Preparation Program (MS)

Preliminary Single Subject Credential

The Preliminary Single Subject Credential authorizes the holder to teach the specific subject(s) named on the credential in departmentalized classes such as those in most middle schools and high schools. However, a teacher authorized for single subject instruction may be assigned to teach any subject in his or her authorized fields at any grade level (preschool, grades K-12, or in classes organized primarily for adults).

The Preliminary Single Subject Credential authorizes candidates to seek initial employment as a single-subject (secondary) 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.
