Students:

Many of you may be attempting to complete Summer and/or Fall Semester registration at this time and are receiving error messages when trying to register for your field experience courses.  Please be advised that only the Office of Field Placement will be able to register students for field experience courses. We will post a message via ListServ when registration is complete.  Once we complete registration for your field experience course, you may then contact your advisor to add any additional co-requisites or curriculum course(s) that you may need. 

It is not necessary to contact the Office of Field Placement and request that we register you for your field experience course.  We will complete this process for all students who have applied during the application period and who are deemed eligible to participate in a field experience for the upcoming Semester(s).

Good Morning Teacher Candidates,

Thank you for completing your Summer and Fall fieldwork applications. We are beginning the process of reviewing applications and requesting placements with various school systems. Confirmed placements will be posted in TOFES as they come in.  Please continue to check TOFES for application placement updates.  If you do not see a confirmed placement in TOFES at that time, it means that the Office of Field Placement is still awaiting the confirmed placement for you. Once we have the confirmed placement from the school system, TOFES will be updated. Our office will be accepting placements up until field experience begins.

If you need to change your experience or drop your application, please notify our office as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Kristin T. Doss

Associate Director of Field Placement
