Applying for practicum can be a lengthy process. The Office of Field Experience recommends that you start the process early enough to remedy any problems that may arise before your application is due. Applications are due the first day of the quarter before you plan to start your practicum. Students must submit one application per practicum course and one application per field site and preceptor. Deadlines are firm.
