  • Clear Your Administrative Credential


    ACOE's Clear Administrative Services Credentialing (CASC) program is intended for individuals who currently possess a Preliminary Administrative Services Credential or an Administrative Services Certificate of Eligibility. Applicants must also be currently employed or have accepted a position requiring an administrative credential.

    If you are seeking an administrative services credential for the first time, please visit the Commission on Teacher Credentialing's website for the requirements and program sponsors. We look forward to supporting you in future when you are seeking the clear credential.
