Most students will complete their culminating project during the spring semester.

Only 3 credits of field training are required and can be completed in either the fall or spring semester. Consult your advisor.

 

If you complete 6 credits of field training, opting to take 3 extra credits of field training at the same site over two semesters, the following procedures apply:

  • Form 1, confirmation of field training, is needed each semester
  • Form 2, the mentor’s evaluation of the student, is needed each semester
  • Form 3, the student’s evaluation of the experience, is only needed in the last semester
  • A field training report is submitted at the end of each semester
