ASSEMBLY BILL 130: NEW OPTIONS TO MEET BASIC SKILLS AND SUBJECT MATTER
Assembly Bill (AB) 130 was signed by the Governor and became effective July 9, 2021. Provisions of the bill create new options for credential candidates to meet the Subject Matter and the Basic Skills Requirements (BSR). The bill does not waive the requirement.

Courses must have been taken at a regionally-accredited college or university for credit, passed with a grade of B or better, be degree applicable, and be at least 3 semester units (or equivalent quarter units).
