Preliminary Credential Admissions Requirements - GPA Requirement

All credential candidates must have completed (or be in the process of completing) a bachelor’s degree program. 

The SDSU Credential Programs require one of the following:

  • 2.67 GPA Cumulative Overall
  • 2.75 GPA in your last 60 semester/ 90 quarter units

Special Consideration

If you decide to apply to the credential program with a deficient GPA (cumulative GPA less than 2.67 and/ or last 60/ 90 GPA less than 2.75), then you must complete the Special Consideration question in the Program Materials section of the Cal State Apply application.

You will need to upload a document describing what factors led to your low GPA and the faculty will consider these items as they review your application for admission.
