  • Field Placement Application

    Field Placement Applicants:

    Please complete a field placement application for each semester in which you are taking courses that require field experience. Be sure you choose the correct application for graduate or undergraduate students. The application will be submitted to our office electronically.

    Review your course requirements, GPA, and prerequisites for field experience with your advisor. Please make sure that you leave enough time in your schedule to complete your field requirements. At a minimum you should set aside at least one morning and one afternoon per week, so plan your schedule accordingly. Some field requirements, times, and locations are posted on WebAdvisor with specific days and times to help in planning. Many courses are now held off campus and do their field hours in the same location. Check WebAdvisor for this information as well.

    Please speak with your Professors and Education Advisor regarding field hours and if you need help with scheduling your courses.

    Transfer students must complete the application process as soon as they register for courses.

    A list of Field Experience Courses is also listed in our Field Experience Handbook.

    Requests for special considerations in placement or requests for placement at a worksite MUST be in writing and dropped off in my office, McAllan Hall 109, as soon as possible. You may be able to perform your early field hours at your worksite if you are employed full time and you obtain a letter from the school/district/agency that is sent to the Office of Certification, Field Placements, and School Partnerships which states the following:

    1. that you are under a full time contract to the district/agency/school;
    2. that you may continue employment while meeting your field experience requirements;
    3. that the worksite is relevant to your area of certification, content area, and is viable to the required early field requirements;
    4. the first and last name of the person who will assume the role of cooperating teacher.
