Administrative Interns

At times, school districts need administrators with intern credentials to meet unfilled needs for credentialed administrators in elementary, middle, and high schools.

The School of Education partners with districts and offers the administrative intern credential program for qualified MA/MS PASC candidates to allow them to work as contract administrators with strong support from PLNU faculty as they earn their PASC.

As an intern, a candidate will be assigned a district coach and a university supervisor to provide support and guidance in their role as administrator.  The candidate will enroll in this support through GEL 6048: Administrative Intern Support Seminar for three (3) units in each quad until they have completed all requirements for their PASC.

Administrative Interns must meet the following requirements:

  • Provide proof of four (4) years of successful teaching on a valid California credential
  • Be accepted and enrolled in the PLNU PASC program prior to recommendation for an administrative intern credential
  • Have a GPA of 3.0 in the program and no grade lower than B
  • Receive a recommendation from the Program Coordinator

More details regarding the Administrative Intern and an application for the internship may be found in the Administrative Intern Handbook.
