Special Education Clear Credential & Master's Degree Application Process
Learn how to apply for a master's degree while clearing a teaching credential in special education.
Note: Starting Fall 2018, employment verification will be required to enroll in the Special Education Clear Credential program. You must be employed as a "teacher of record" — substitute teaching and aid positions will not meet this requirement.
