Counseling Masters Field Experience

Changes in Field Experience/Supervision

You must participate in field experience only as specifically documented on your approved field experience application. Any changes (site supervisors, in-home counseling, TMH, etc.) must be approved in advance.

What to do if:

Notify your faculty supervisor and the SOC-OFE immediately if anything changes at your site.

Dropping or Withdrawing from a Field Experience Course

Notify your faculty supervisor and the SOC-OFE (counselingfield@mail.waldenu.edu) before discontinuing the field experience.

Requests to withdraw from field experience courses require academic coordinator approval. You can your site supervisor will be asked to complete a Field Experience Termination Form to document the circumstances surrounding your withdrawal.

Incomplete Grades and Extensions

If you are not able to finish the required hours for field experience in the time allotted, there are options available to you:

  • Incomplete (I) Grade: if you have at least 80% of your direct and total hours
  • Extension: if you don't have at least 80% of your hours (or anticipate needing more than 60 days)

Field Experience Manual: Incomplete (I) Grade and Extension Policy

I Grades and Extensions require an approved application, as with every other quarter of field experience, but the usual field experience application submission windows do not apply. Complete the Request for Incomplete or Extension form to have a new application opened for you in Meditrek.
