Thank you for completing your Spring fieldwork application. We are in the process of reviewing and requesting placements with various school systems. Confirmed placements will be posted in TOFES starting December 11th for Spring field placement. 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.

Attention Teacher Candidates,

The Office of Field Placement has posted our Field Experience Calendar for Fall 2017. This calendar can help students find orientation dates and times along with field experience dates. Please note that the beginning dates for field experience differ from the university semester dates. Orientation room information will be posted on the announcement page at a later time.

All students must attend an orientation prior to starting field experience. If you cannot make orientation at your main site, you may travel to an alternate location. Please arrive on time. Orientation held on August 21st, will only be for Macon Residential and RAC students.

Confirmed placements are coming in daily. TOFES will be updated starting July 14th. Please check your online application for placement updates.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office. I look forward to seeing you all.
