    Pre-Admission Disclosure for Credentialing Programs

    Admission into programs leading to credentialing does not guarantee that students will obtain a credential. Credentialing requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the CSU and requirements can change at any time. For example, credentialing requirements can include evidence of the right to work in the United States (e.g., social security number or tax payer identification number) or successfully passing a criminal background check. Students are responsible for determining whether they can meet credentialing requirements. The CSU will not refund tuition, fees, or any associated costs to students who determine subsequent to admission that they cannot meet credentialing requirements. Information concerning credentialing requirements are available from the SDSU College of Education, Office of Student Services in EBA 259.
