I have a Single Subject credential and now want to add another subject area.

If you have a valid Single Subject Credential and now want a second Single Subject Credential in another subject area you must do the following:

  1. Meet subject matter competency either by waiver or exam(s) in the subject you are seeking a Single Subject Credential; contact the credentials office at credentials.office@sonoma.edu if you are unsure of what exams to take.
  2. Take a methodology course in the subject that you want to add at a University with an approved Credential Program: at Sonoma State contact the department chair at kelly.estrada@sonoma.edu  to obtain advising and instructions on registration.
  3. Once you have these requirement met, you can apply directly to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for your second credential; visit http://www.ctc.ca.gov/ for more information OR contact the Credential Analyst if you wish for SSU to recommend you or if you need additional information, at veronica.duarte@sonoma.edu. Please note that a processing fee is required if you wish for SSU to submit the request to CTC. For more information please email the Credentials Office at credentials.office@sonoma.edu.
