Cal Poly Pomona Department of Education

2 Basic Teacher Credential Programs Offered
Multiple Subject Credential (elementary/middle school teaching) Single Subject Credential (secondary/middle school teaching) Education Specialist Credentials (Mild/Moderate or Moderate/Severe disabilities)

3 How Long Is The Program? The Credential Programs offered at Cal Poly Pomona are designed to be completed in approximately 1 year, once prerequisite courses are complete, and if candidates enroll in three to four courses per quarter. For part-time students, the time expected to complete the program varies based on the pace individuals set for themselves. The average number of quarters, however, is four to five. Other factors that may affect length of the program are whether students choose the standard route or the internship route…

4 Standard Students & Interns
There are two routes you may take in order to complete a teacher credential program at Cal Poly Pomona. Course and exam requirements remain the same; it is the way in which the program is completed that may vary. Standard Students complete all coursework first, then spend the last two quarters of the program completing clinical practice requirements. The Office of Clinical Practice places standard students in their teaching assignments. Teacher Interns complete clinical practice requirements throughout the program, while employed in schools, as the “Teacher of Record”.
