SOC-OFE Masters Students - Field Experience Manual: Verification of Field Experience Hours for Licensure

Verification of Field Experience Hours for Licensure

Some licensure boards require that Walden faculty or staff members verify field experience hours prior to licensure. Students should send these requests to the field experience operations director. Requests should be submitted as early as possible, as some forms may take considerable time to complete, depending on the information and signatures required.

Some forms will require signatures from multiple parties (e.g., student, site supervisor, director of field experience). Licensure boards often require that all signatures are original (not scanned). If the licensure board requires documents with multiple signatures, the required signatures should be first obtained from parties other than Walden University. Students should get at least two copies of the forms signed so that one original can be mailed to Walden and another can be maintained in their records. These forms should be mailed to the following address:

Walden University

Attn: Field Experience Operations Director—School of Counseling

100 Washington Avenue South, Suite 900

Minneapolis, MN 55401

Students should request copies of final documents signed by faculty members at the end of each quarter of practicum and internship. Students must also keep copies of all forms related to practicum and internship, including time logs, evaluations, and documents sent to the state licensure board.
