The minimum number of field placement hours required per semester is:

Full-Time students and Advanced Standing Students: 24 hours per week, three semesters, for 316 hours each semester and a final total of 948 hours.

Part-Time students: 12 hours per week, six semesters, for 158 hours each semester and a final total of 948 hours.

These situations should be infrequent. Making up hours is at the discretion of the agency and should be discussed with both your Field Instructor and Field Liaison.
