Step 1: Determine If You Are Ready for Field Placement

Can you handle taking four or five courses? Can you change your schedule to accommodate taking a 15- or 20-hour week field placement in addition to taking four or five courses?

If you answered NO, you may want to consider postponing your field placement until the Fall semester of the following year.
