MSW Field Placement Forms

Students should note that the 0.5 credit field education course includes a field seminar and a field placement of 450 hours in an appropriate agency normally other than the student's place of employment. The Field education course is undertaken between January and end of June (on-campus) and between September and April (distance) concurrently with a bi-weekly field education seminar, which is online for distance students. 

Placement agencies set their own criteria for accepting MSW student placements. For example, placements in physical and mental health typically require MSW students to have at least 2 years of direct social work experience.

Confirmation of field placements requires advanced planning as there is considerable coordination required for each student placement. Incomplete and/or late submissions will not be accepted.

We have learned that there have been some technical issues with filling in the fillable pdf forms. In order to make and save changes to a PDF file, you need Adobe Acrobat Reader. Changes that normally require Adobe Acrobat include: entering text, saving a PDF form, and adding comments.
