Apply for Field Placement
You should apply for your field placement the semester before you expect to participate in your clinical field experience.
Student interviews with their placement specialist will begin in late January. All students should submit their application materials for Fall 2024 by February 1st, 2024.
After a student's application and associated materials are submitted they will receive an email inviting them to schedule a placement specialist interview.
