SOC-OFE Masters Students - Field Experience Manual: Time Off During Field Experience

Time Off During Field Experience

Students, especially those participating in field experiences in the winter or summer quarters, need to be mindful of site schedules, as there are often periods of time when sites are closed (for vacations, holidays, etc.). CACREP requires full participation in every week of enrollment in each field experience course. Student vacations and “breaks” are not permitted to be scheduled during active enrollment in a field experience course. This is subject to sanctions up to and including earning an Unsatisfactory (U) grade in the field experience course. Students should consult with faculty for any unavoidable exceptions (e.g., scheduled closings). Students may take leaves of absence between quarters of field experience in accordance with university policies and processes.
