Preliminary Administrative Services Credential
Dr. Glenn Sewell
This program is designed for students who are committed to improving education and who want to advance their careers by becoming public school administrators. For additional information on credential requirements, please see the School of Education Credential Information section of the catalog.
NOTE: Those students who already have an administrative position in a public school may want to take the Internship Option by enrolling in EDA 620I instead of EDA 620B. Students pursuing this option must enroll in EDA 620I concurrently with their first course in the program as the Commission on Teacher Credentialing requires interns to spend 12 months in a university-supervised field experience.
