Temporary County Certificates

The ICOE Credentials Office has the authority to issue Temporary County Certificates (TCC) to candidates after it has obtained all required documentation and determined that the candidate qualifies for a California educator credential.

  • The TCC authorizes the teacher candidate to provide the services that the credential specifies in a California public school classroom on the date indicated on the TCC while the document is processing at the state level. 

  • The TCC is valid until the expiration date listed on the form or until the Commission on Teacher Credentialing grants or denies the credential application.

  • The TCC is prepared by the Credentials Office.
