SDSU Induction for General Education Teachers (Fully Online)

We are no longer able to accept substitute teachers into our program due to changes in the standards set by the California Department of Education. We are sorry for having to make this change.

About the Program 

The SDSU Teacher Induction Program allows teachers to clear Multiple Subject and Single Subject credentials.  

This program is designed around the CSTPs and immediate classroom needs of teachers.  

The program is a one-on-one mentoring model, in which contracted teachers are matched with experienced mentors.  

New teachers receive support to help develop skill and competence in the teaching profession, which helps increase retention of teachers in the education field.  This two-year program allows candidates to engage in an individualized, job-embedded system of mentoring.  

Individual Learning Plans (ILP) focus on self-identified goals and self-reflection, and evidenced through video recordings, and online learning forums. 

The SDSU Induction Program is fully aligned with the new standards for teacher induction programs that were released by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing in 2016.  

This fully online program is designed to support all Multiple and Single Subject teachers holding a Preliminary California Teaching Credential regardless of their current teaching location.  

Candidates may teach in public, private, charter, or international schools with diverse populations.

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 taxpayer 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.
