Temporary County Certificates (TCC)

A Temporary County Certificate (TCC) is a document authorized by California Education Code to allow a teacher to serve in a certificated position while an application for a credential is being reviewed at the Calfornia Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). 

The San Diego County Office of Education Credential Services Department has the authority to issue a TCC to a teacher candidate after obtaining all required documentation and determining that the candidate qualifies for a California teaching credential.  The TCC is valid until the expiration date listed on the form or until the CTC grants or denies the credential application.  A TCC is only valid in the county of issuance.

To obtain a TCC you must provide a completed application packet including all supporting documentation and fee to our office.  After we have reviewed the application and determined eligibility, you will receive a copy of the TCC.
