Are you a teacher, school counselor, or certificated personnel interested in becoming a school principal in California? Perhaps you want to pursue the credential first and think about the master’s later? If so, the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential (PASC) will meet your needs!

The PASC program is closely aligned with our MA in Educational Leadership P-12 Emphasis coursework and prepares candidates for the State of California culminating credential assessment tasks.

Upon completion of the program, candidates are eligible for the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC).
