A completed application must be on file before enrolling in the courses. To request a program application, please contact the Education Department directly by phone at (858)534-9286 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Although most students finish the program within one-to-two years, in order to be eligible for a certificate from UC San Diego Extension and a CCTC Reading and Literacy Added Authorization, all required coursework must be completed within five years of being admitted to the current program.
This program is aligned with the Reading and Literacy Added Authorization requirements and standards established by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC). All required courses are CCTC approved; therefore once admitted candidates complete the program, they will be eligible to earn an official Reading and Literacy Added Authorization from the Commission on Teacher Credentialing. All candidates must successfully maintain a GPA of 2.0 or better and receive a grade of “C” or higher to be eligible for the Reading and Literacy Added Authorization.
If you do not meet the requirements for the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) Added Authorization you may still earn a Reading Instruction Professional Certificate from UCSD Extension.
