Requests for Letters of Good Standing

Letters of Good Standing

A ‘letter of good standing' is a term used to describe a letter issued by a Credential Analyst from the Credential Student Service Center. The letter indicates when a credential candidate is expected to finish the credential program and it verifies what authorizations will be allowed under the respective credential. This letter is free to current credential candidates; however, we may limit the number of your requests. We suggest that you make copies of your letter or make it a PDF for your records for future agencies.

Letters of Good Standing can be provided after Census date (20th instructional date of the semester).

Please follow the procedures below to request a Letter of Good Standing:

  1. You must send an email to: or put a request in writing and mail to our office at 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd., Hayward, CA 94542.
