Record Field Experience Hours

After Field Experience

At the end of a field experience, students must complete the second requirement: Record Field Experience Hours.

In order for Field Experience Hours to be applied to a teacher education degree, Field Experience Hours must be recorded before the end of the semester they were conducted. Students are responsible for recording their Field Experience Hours and ensuring cooperating teachers approve the Field Experience Hours.
