How is my field placement determined?

Over the summer, the Advising Office, the Field Education Department, and the Office of Student Services work in coordination to create a class schedule that fits your program requirements, as well as any special needs or circumstances you have noted on your Registration Approval Form. Our Field Education Department, in arranging more than 400 Fall placements, strives to ensure the best possible match for each incoming student. Field Department staff study very carefully the information you have supplied on the Field Placement Form alongside the prior experience noted on your résumé. Your placement site is linked to your advisor assignment.
