Credential Request Process

Three-steps towards obtaining your credential at CSUDH

  1. CSUDH will enter the data necessary to recommend you for the credential once you complete and submit the Credential Request Form (See Admissions + Matriculation).
  2. The information will be transmitted into CCTC’s system, an email will be sent to you and CSUDH, from CCTC, requesting that you complete their credential application form and pay the $57 application fee by credit card. Instructions for completing the credential application and paying the fee will be included in the email you receive from CCTC. Once you have completed this task, an email is sent to you and CSUDH stating you have been recommended for the credential.
  3. Within two working days from when your file is downloaded, you will receive email confirmation that your credential has been granted, providing there are no extenuating circumstances. CCTC anticipates the process to take 10 working days after you have completed the task.

Candidates do not need to be currently enrolled to apply for their credential if they have met the requirements. Although, candidates do need to apply for their credential within 7 years to meet the time limit on coursework.
