Credential Program Materials
Preliminary Credential Admissions Requirements - Video
You will be asked in the Cal State Apply application to upload a video, no longer than 2 minutes in length, responding to the following prompts:
- What is a strength you bring to teaching and what do you anticipate will be a challenge for you?
- How have your experiences or interests related to teaching and/or your subject area prepared you for the credential program? How do you hope students will be changed by the lessons you create for them?
You may choose to get creative in your video, but please be sure to answer the questions. Your answer to the questions is more important than being creative. The preference of the faculty is that you would appear in the video.
In the application, you will need to upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo or you could choose to add it to your Google Drive and use the shareable link to provide in your application. Please make sure the link you share in your application is public or shareable so the faculty will be able to view this in your application.
- Please be sure to provide us the actual URL/web address in your application. Do not link the URL to words (i.e Video ) as the system does not allow us to link to the video through words.
- Please make sure the link you share in your application is public or shareable so the faculty will be able to view this in your application.
