Field Placement Process

Students complete an online Field Application and submit the application to Field Education no later than 11:59pm (EST) on the stated deadline. The Associate Director of Field Education reviews each application and schedules a pre-placement interview to match students to an approved field agency. Once a match is confirmed, students are provided with a referral and directed to schedule the agency field interview within one week. Students are referred on a first come first serve basis.

Students must complete the Field Orientation Training as well as Virtus/Safe Environment Training. In addition, students will also need to comply with the agency-specific requirements for acceptance which may include background clearance, proof of health insurance, additional vaccines, health screenings and/or special trainings/orientation.

It is important to note that in the Field placement process, students may encounter delays due to scheduling, completion of all required documents, and/ or background / health screenings. Field Education will continue to support the student in this field process.
