The Postsecondary Literacy and Learning (PLL) Certificate allows you to teach reading at the community-college level if you have a master’s degree in any teachable subject.
The PLL certificate provides educators advanced training in literacy and adult learning to address the changing needs of students at community colleges as they implement Assembly Bill 705.
Where applicable, completion of the program provides the necessary additional certification for individuals who wish to teach reading at a community college as required by AB 1725.
To qualify for the program, you must have completed a BS or BA from an accredited institution with a minimum GPA of 2.5 in the last 60 semester units attempted for that degree.
Due to state and federal regulations, non-California residents may only enroll in CSUF online courses when their state has authorized CSUF as a provider. View the list of CSUF-authorized states.
