Schedules and Timelines

Field Education Timelines

Field education courses are structured within specific terms, with start and end dates that normally do not align with the term dates for the class-based courses. Placements outside these terms are not possible. This structure considers the student’s program as a whole, and ensures that students complete required courses within the appropriate course sequence and can graduate in a timely manner. Field courses and class-based courses are offered concurrently. Placements are scheduled during days students are not required to be in class (e.g. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for advanced standing full-time placements).

Thesis Student Timelines

Thesis students in the advanced standing program may opt to be exempt from 315 field placement hours towards the advanced placement. Thesis students in the two year full-time or three year part-time programs may opt to be exempt from 126 hours towards the advanced, second placement. Exemptions may not be split between placements and cannot apply to the foundational placement.
