New students must complete the Field Planning form. Specific and detailed information is sent individually to students depending on their programs and status.
Students are asked not to contact agencies directly; agencies are expecting to receive student referrals from the Field Education Office. If students have suggestions about particular organizations, please let the Field Education Office know. They will look into the possibility of having them added to the inventory of field agencies; this involves identifying an eligible field instructor at a prospective field site and arranging for both insurance and formal affiliation agreements with each organization.
