Interview and Practicum Matching Schedule 2017-2018

Wednesday April 26, 2017 @ noon.  Practicum Administration System (PAS) opens for YEAR II/Advanced Standing students to filter by field and view practicum opportunities.

Tuesday May 2, 2017 @ 8:59 a.m. Students submit FORM A with 5 ranked interview selections. No further submissions after this time.

May 2, 2017 @ 9:00 a.m. – Friday May 5, 2017. Practicum Office runs the algorithm. The Practicum Office advises and contacts all students who were matched with 0 or 1 interview(s). Students not matched with 2 interviews revisit the PAS. From remaining selections, they may submit up to 5 more interview selections on FORM A anytime until the final submission date and time on Monday May 8, 2017 @ 8: 59 a.m.

Friday May 5, 2017 @ noon.  The PAS opens for the cohort to view interview matches (0, 1, 2). Students matched with 1 or 2 interviews may initiate contact with field instructor(s). Field instructors also view who is matched for interviews. Students still requiring 1 or 2 interviews revisit the PAS and resubmit FORM A.

Monday May 8, 2017 @ 8:59 a.m. Only for students who were matched with 0 or 1 interview following the first run of the PAS – submission of FORM A again. The Practicum Office runs the algorithm again. The Practicum Office advises and contacts students again who do not have 2 interviews. They may revisit the PAS and submit to the Practicum office by EMAIL up to 3 more selections.

Monday May 8 – Friday June 16, 2017 Interviews occur. Students inform the Practicum Office if they cannot go forward with a practicum before the PAS has the final algorithm run. .

Monday June 19, 2017 @ 8:59 a.m. Students submit FORM C with 2 ranked interviews.

Monday June 19, 2017 – Friday June 23, 2017.  The PAS is closed to run the algorithm. Students not matched with a practicum are contacted and advised that the Practicum Office will continue to work with them until matched.

Friday June 23, 2017.  PAS opens for cohort to view practicum match.

June – September 2017 Practicum Office works with students who remain unmatched.

Wednesday September 13, 2017. First day of practicum.

Competitive Practicum opportunities

The practicum assignment process does not begin until late April 2017, however, from time to time the Practicum Office learns of opportunities that fall outside of the established process and schedule which may be of interest to you.  These practicums cannot be guaranteed as FIFSW students will be competing with students from other academic institutions for a limited number of spaces.
