Candidates submit one application if they currently attend SSU as a post-bac student and are completing a MA Program, Credential Program or are taking the pre-reqs as a post-grad student. Please contact the SoE Credentials Office for the SOE application.

Candidates submit two applications if they are not currently attending SSU as a post-bac student. The primary application is Cal State Apply.
