Administrative Services Credential

The Administrative Services Credential Program at CSU Dominguez Hills is designed to prepare educators for leadership positions in elementary and secondary schools and certain district level positions. The program is comprised of two tiers. The first tier, the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential, authorizes service in positions serving grades kindergarten through 12. A valid Preliminary Administrative Services Credential is required for admission to the second tier (Professional Administrative Services Credential program). Before the Professional Administrative Services Credential can be granted, the candidate must be employed in a position requiring a valid Administrative Services Credential for a minimum of two years.
