Credential Program Admissions Process
Admission to a credential program is a two step process:
STEP #1: Admission to the University - This is completed through the system wide admissions web site Cal State Apply. If you are currently a Cal Poly Pomona student, you do not need to complete this first step as you are already admitted to the university.
STEP #2: Admission to the credential program -Below you will find links to the admissions packets for each credential program. Remember to follow the directions carefully.
