The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC)

The College of Education at California State University Dominguez Hills is accredited at the state level by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). CTC was created in 1970 by the Ryan Act and is the oldest of the autonomous state standards boards in the nation.  The major purpose of the agency is to serve as a state standards board for educator preparation for the public schools of California, the licensing and credentialing of professional educators in the State, the enforcement of professional practices of educators, and the discipline of credential holders in the State of California. Please note this accreditation does not include individual education courses that the institution offers to P-12 educators for professional development, re-licensure, or other purposes.


As required by Title II (Sections 205 through 208) of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (PL 110-315), institutions with teacher preparation programs prepare an annual report for Congress and the public on the preparation of their teachers. The annual reports are provided in a PDF below:
