Applicant must live OR work in California in order to be eligible for stipend.
Stipends are available once per program year per applicant. The current program year runs from July 1 to June 30.
Stipend availability and deadlines for applications will be posted on the permit page near the end of each program year.
Funding is first come, first served. When funding has been expended, applications will be returned to the applicant. Applicants are then responsible to apply directly to the Commission and include the application fee.
The CDTC will allow applicants to resubmit an incomplete or incorrect application only once each program year.
A letter outlining the required corrections will accompany the returned application.
Applicants are encouraged to email CDTC-Permit@yosemite.edu with questions prior to returning the application.
Applications returned a second time will include instructions on how to apply directly to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
Downgrades and extensions are not eligible for the stipend. Eligibility for the other permit types are listed on the permit home page.
Applications mailed directly to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) in Sacramento are not eligible for the stipend.
Online renewals, where paperwork is not mailed to the CTC, are eligible for the stipend if the level/type/date of renewal meets eligibility requirements listed on the permit stipend home page.
Eligibility for the permit stipend does not guarantee a permit will be issued. Permits are issued by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing; this agency is the final authority for issuing permits.
The CDTC does not evaluate transcripts for eligibility. Final decision on whether a course qualifies for a permit is made by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
The CDTC does review applications for completeness, including transcript review, but it is the responsibility of the applicant to apply for the permit level they are qualified for.
