How to meet the requirements; how to have a class reviewed to see if it is equivalent; how to have your G.P.A. evaluated, what to do if prerequisites can’t be met by application deadline

Information Regarding Required Testing

California Basic Skills Requirement (commonly known as CBEST); Subject Matter Verification (commonly known as CSET); how timing of the tests impacts when you should apply
