      Dear Prospective Teaching Credential Completers – congratulations on your progress towards completing a preliminary multiple subject, single subject or education specialist credential here in the Charter College of Education!  As you know, assessment is an important component of all teaching endeavors and to that end, we need your participation in the CSU Exit Evaluation. The anonymous feedback gathered in this survey will help us to identify strengths and areas for improvement in our teaching credential programs. This online evaluation should take less than 30 minutes of your time.

      In order to make sure that we gather feedback from each and every preliminary teaching credential completer, we have built the survey completion into your credential application process. We ask that you complete the survey at the time of credential application before we submit your credential recommendation to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). The CSU System will notify us when you have completed the survey. We will send you an email reminder, if needed.

      Please click this LINK to access the survey!

      Thank you again for choosing Cal State L.A. for your teacher preparation program!

    • The CCTC will email instructions, to the email on the application, on completing your portion of the credential application processing. CTCC requires a credit/debit card to pay for processing fees.
