Students can be registered for the class as soon as they are approved. The last day to add or drop this course with 100% tuition reimbursement is July 8. Field work can commence in June but must run past July 6. Students must receive approval to be registered in the Supervised Externship and should submit the Externship Information Form found in the Externship module on Symplicity to begin the approval process. To access the form, log into Symplicity and select Externship module from the "Shortcuts" on the right side of the screen. Once approved, students will be registered by the Records Office. Further details regarding externship requirements can be found in the externship information packet. If you have questions, email Dean Huber and Ilissa Belanger.
