All certificate program students must complete the field requirement - 40 hours of hands-on experience as a volunteer or employee in a position that is related to their chosen program. Begin by identifying a relevant employment or volunteer opportunity in your area; then submit your Field Position Registration form for approval. Students must complete a Field Position Registration form and have it approved by the Office of Admissions before they begin accumulating field hours.
Students may fulfill the volunteer or employment requirement by completing their hours at one or multiple institutions. Field Position Registration forms must be filled out and approved for each institution. Students may complete their hours at any time prior to the issuance of their certificate.
Once the position has been registered, you may begin recording your hours on the Field Hour Sheets. When the hours are completed, have your employer or volunteer coordinator sign the form and submit it to the Office of Admissions.
Students pursuing more than one certificate must complete the Field Requirement separately for each certificate program.
All requirements must be met and the appropriate work submitted prior to the issuance of a student’s certificate. If you have any questions regarding this program, please call (866) 755-0448 or e-mail Dr. Rene' Brooks at email@example.com.
