TRANSFER CREDIT

Acceptance of transfer coursework for the credential programs is determined on a case-by-case basis. Coursework taken

more than five years prior to admission may not be accepted. The candidate may also need to retake courses if methods

have changed significantly, or if there has been a lapse of time out of the profession. This determination is made at the

sole discretion of the TMU Teaching Credential Program. Candidates should provide official transcripts and course

descriptions for transfer credit evaluation as part of the admissions process.

NOTICE: It is important to check with the credential analyst for updates regarding any modifications and/or additions to the stated list of

courses and requirements. Periodically, the State of California mandates changes in program structure and content, which the University is

required to implement.
