THE INTERN CREDENTIAL The Intern Credential reflects a special relationship between Notre Dame de Namur University and the employing school district. As an Intern teacher your role is unique: a paid faculty member, whether part or full-time, who is also a credential candidate. As such, you will receive special support from the credential program at NDNU and from the school district. The Intern credential is a formal teaching license that requires you to meet different standards than those for the Emergency Permit or Substitute credential. In order to qualify for an Intern credential the following requirements must be documented by the Credential Analyst: Requirements for Internship Credential Passage of Basic Skills Requirement (e.g. CBEST or 3 new options, see link below) For more information, see: http://www.ctc.ca.gov/credentials/leaflets/cl667.pdf Passing score reports should be sent to Notre Dame de Namur University, code: 188. If scores were not sent, please provide the official report to the Education Department so we can make an official copy and return your originals to you. Verification of Subject Matter Competence (e.g., CSET or Subject Matter Waiver) Passing score reports should be sent to Notre Dame de Namur University, code: 518. If scores were not sent, please provide the official report to the Education Department so we can make an official copy and return your originals to you. For subject matter programs (aka “waivers”), contact Credentials Office. Verification of fingerprinting clearance with the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (also called a “Certificate of Clearance”) Note that in order to be eligible for student teaching, your fingerprints and clearance application must have been cleared by the CTC. Your clearance appears on the state database, which we will access for confirmation before your placement. Having merely done LiveScan fingerprints and submitted a follow-up clearance application electronically is not sufficient, as the CTC regularly sends applications to the Division of Professional Practices for review, for any number of reasons which they do not disclose to us. Professional Practices reviews normally take 4- 6 weeks. Therefore, you should be certain to submit both your LiveScan fingerprints and your follow-up electronic application early enough prior to consideration for student teaching to insure that your application will be fully cleared before the placement coordinator begins the process of securing or confirming your placement. Please note that this is a straightforward legal requirement. No exceptions, waivers, or accommodations of any sort will be considered.

A bachelor’s degree from a California State University (CSU) campus meets this requirement. Copy of negative TB test result from within two years. We need a legible photocopy of the doctor’s report. Signed NDNU Release of Liability Form Verification of 40 Hours of Pre-Acceptance Field Experience. Provide the original form signed by the site supervisor or provide official letter of verification from the site. Receipt of an official offer of employment (usually full-time) from a public school district or WASC-accredited private school with which NDNU has an internship agreement, and Written approval of the teaching position by your Program Director Completed Request for Credential Recommendation (audit) Form, submitted to the credentials office. You must complete the CTC credential application procedure electronically It is very important that you complete this credential application process EARLY. Without the formal recommendation from the School of Education (which can be done ONLY when all requirements are met) the district Personnel Office will not be able to process your paperwork for salary purposes. While you are serving on the Intern credential you will have an on-site Liaison to provide support and assistance. This Liaison will conference with you and your Notre Dame de Namur University Supervisor and participate in the on-going assessment of your performance. The role of Liaison is one required and defined by statute. The Orientation Agreement form must be in your credential file within three weeks of the start of your intern experience. As soon as you and your Liaison have signed, this document should be given to the Credential Analyst. When the Commission on Teacher Credentialing issues the Internship credential, the CTC will send you an email notification and verification of your credential document will remain viewable on the CTC’s website. Intern credentials are issued for service in a specific school district. If you change school districts while on a valid Intern Credential it will be necessary to re-submit an Intern credential application to Sacramento that reflects the district change. This may be accomplished quickly through the Credential Analyst. However, you will need to file a new application and pay the filing fee again. If you are an Intern teacher in a private school all of the above requirements must be met except for the formal filing of an application for the Intern credential to the CTC.
