CLAD Through CTEL Program

In collaboration with UCLA Extension and Extension at UC Riverside, UC San Diego Extension has developed CLAD Through CTEL programming to address revised program standards, receiving Commission approval on January 17, 2008.

Requirements to earn the CCTC CLAD Certificate

The two general California requirements for earning the CCTC CLAD Certificate are:

  • Possession of an appropriate prerequisite credential
  • Passage of a CLAD examination or completion of a specified number of units of appropriate college coursework

A valid preliminary teaching credential is required for admission to the program. These two requirements are necessary in order to be eligible for a CLAD Authorization. To meet California academic requirements, candidates must complete 18 quarter units.

Designed to meet the new

academic requirements of CCTC

Formal Recommendations to CCTC

Upon completion of the CLAD Through CTEL Program, a UCSD Extension credentials analyst will submit a formal recommendation to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC).

Only participants who have completed the entire CLAD Through CTEL program are eligible for formal recommendation.
