Post Admission Requirements

Below are LMU's current post-admission requirements for the educational psychology program, which ensure compliance with state and local regulations, as well as with our PK-12 school partners and our professional accrediting bodies: the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). It is in your best interest to complete these requirements as soon as possible.

Submit Fingerprint Clearance Documentation

Timing: No later than the end of June prior to enrollment

Details: Follow procedures at CTC Certificate of Clearance (COC) Directions for directions on fingerprinting using the LiveScan 41-LSForm. It takes two to four weeks to receive results in California; out-of-state clearances can take three to four months. We strongly suggest that you submit your COC with your application to LMU.

Complete California Basic Skills Requirements

Timing: No later than the end of June prior to enrollment

Details: There are several ways in which to meet the California Basic Skills Requirement. A large number of candidates do so by completing the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST). Testing options, passing scores, and registration is found here. If you can submit this verification with your application, you've got a head start.

Submit tuberculosis (TB) test results 

Timing: No later than the end of September in the first year of enrollment.

Details: Negative TB test results must be dated within the past 12 months. Currently enrolled LMU students are eligible to take the TB test at LMU's Student Health Center.
