Preliminary Administrative Services Credential

Contact Information


This program is for any educators who are interested in furthering their understanding of educational leadership to acquire the skills and dispositions needed to lead schools effectively. LMU’s Preliminary Administrative Services Credential program is specifically designed to prepare candidates for educational administration positions in public, private, charter, and Catholic schools. All academic coursework for the Administrative Services Credential program (with the exception of CalAPA fieldwork) applies towards the M.A. in School Administration program. The Preliminary Administrative Services Credential is a requirement in many districts as well as for many higher-level district positions. All LMU School of Education credential programs meet the California State requirements as specified by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). The institution has not made a determination as to whether the credential program meets the requirements of states outside of California.

The Preliminary Administrative Services Credential is a completely online program, except for the DLI Aspiring Principals of Color Fellowship program which is delivered in a hybrid model.
