(1) Complete CSUN's math major in Secondary Teaching, FYI-, or JYI-Math and earn grades of C or better and a GPA of at least 2.6 in all courses required for the major (download spreadsheet and check your GPA). If you have satisfied this requirement, you must ask the Math Department to provide your proof of subject matter clearance to the Credential Office.
(2) Complete another option of CSUN's math major and take Foundations of Geometry (Math 370), the Capstone Course for prospective teachers (Math 490), and at least one upper division statistics course (Math 341, Math 440A, or Math 440B), and earn grades of C or better and a GPA of at least 2.6 in all courses required for the major (meet with an advisor for approval in advance of completing these requirements).
(3) Pass the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET): Mathematics. You must pass Subtests I and II to enter the Credential Program; you should also pass Subtest III for a "regular" credential (Subtests I and II will yield a foundational-level Credential, which authorizes the holder to teach general mathematics, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, and consumer mathematics in grades twelve and below, including preschool, and in classes organized primarily for adults; teaching Advanced Placement (AP) courses is not authorized by this credential). This will be verified by the Credential Office and you do not need to see an advisor in the Mathematics Department.
