NOTE

The only official “breaks” from field are outlined above. Students are expected to be in their field placements at all other times during the academic year. Students who miss scheduled time due to agency closings are expected to make up that time. All students must complete a minimum of 600 hours in the field. Time off for school breaks or personal reasons (even if approved by the field instructor) does not count toward field hours. Only time actually worked is counted.

Students placed in school settings may need to adjust their schedules in accordance with the calendar of the school system. Students and field instructors are expected to discuss scheduling at the start of the placement. Individual schedules are not negotiated by the University.

Students are expected to remain in their practicum until the last regularly scheduled day of field work. Exceptions to this contractual agreement for 14-hour students are made only with agency and Field Instruction office permission in advance. In NO instance may students end placement before May 1, 2015.
