Out of State Verifications

Updated on October 7, 2015

If you have completed your credential at CSUEB (formerly CSU, Hayward) and need to have an Out-of-State Credential Verification Form filled out for your credential application to another state, please follow these procedures below to request an Out of State Verification:

  1. You must send the form to our office in hard copy to: 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd., Room AE 235, Hayward, CA 94542.
  2. Include a check or money order for $25 (payable to CSUEB) attached to the Credential Processing Receipt with each request. Use only one form per credential document, e.g., if you completed TEDSPED, that counts as two requests -- one for the Multiple Subject Credential and one for Education Specialist Credential, total of $50.
  3. Please be sure that your information is clearly noted along with any other pertinent applicant information needed by the requesting agency:
    1. Your full legal name (as it appears in the university records)
    2. Your CSUEB Net ID (Student ID)
    3. The credential program you are completing or have completed.
    4. Date you plan to complete your last requirement or date you already completed your entire program.
    5. Your daytime contact phone number.
    6. Photocopy of your California credential document.
    7. (Optional) Unofficial copies of all transcripts. Remitting your copies may expedite our processing in case we are unable to access your transcripts in the university student administration system.
  4. Within approximately 4 weeks of receiving your request, the CSSC will mail your Out of State Verification to the mailing address as noted on the form(s).
  5. If there are any questions or concerns, our staff will email or call you before mailing out your form.

Please note: these forms are usually part of your application packet for an out-of-state credential. Questions regarding these forms should be directed to the State Department of Education in the state to which you will seek a credential.

The CSSC will complete the request and obtain the necessary signatures.

For your planning, please know that requests are handled on a first-come, first-served basis although the official processing of credential documents will take precedence over verification requests.
