Admission into the Bilingual Authorization Program requires the following:
Valid California Multiple Subjects, Single Subject, or Education Specialist teaching credential.* The prerequisite credential will also authorize instruction to English learners such as CLAD or an equivalent English Learner Authorization. (The Certificate of Completion of Staff Development is not equivalent to a CLAD authorization.)
Spanish language proficiency as demonstrated by the passing of CSET LOTE Subtest III. Note: CSET LOTE Subtest III is not required for admission; however, it must be completed prior to taking EDBI 6200 and EDBI 6300.
