Preliminary Administrative Services Credential (PASC) Program

PASC Cohort

About PASC

The School of Education offers a post-baccalaureate program leading to the California Preliminary Administrative Services Credential for education professionals seeking a career as a public school administrator.

With this credential you can serve as an assistant superintendent, principal, assistant principal, supervisor, coordinator, or other equivalent level administrator in California public schools.

PASC Program candidates join a cohort of peers and colleagues who progress through the program together.  In the program candidates have learning experiences with each of the six California Educational Leadership Domains in each of the four courses. Instruction and field experiences are organized across ten strands. Site-based field experiences are aligned with each strand. A series of ePortfolio tasks, also aligned with the strands and the California Administrator Performance Expectations, serve as the primary candidate assessments of competence and proficiency.

Program completers who hold the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential and take positions in California schools have the foundations of educational leadership necessary to begin qualifying for the Clear California Administrative Services Credential granted through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC)(opens in new window).
