Completion of an approved certification program is one requirement for certification in Pennsylvania. In the certification process, the University informs the state that a student has completed the University's state-approved program. The state then reviews the student's credentials and determines eligibility for certification. We encourage all students to review the Pennsylvania Department of Education certification requirements before beginning Cal U's program. The endorsement for certification process must be initiated by the student once they have met all state requirements.
Students seeking certification in a state other than Pennsylvania must check their respective state Department of Education requirements and whether completing the principal program at Cal U will be accepted. Out-of-state students seeking Pennsylvania certification are required to notify the department of that intent in order to meet the Pennsylvania certification expectations. Additional information related to Pennsylvania certification can be found on the Pennsylvania Department of Education website: www.education.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/pennsylvania_department_of_education/7237.
