Service Region Policy
The COEHS Field Experience Service Region is defined by a large C-shaped area around Lake Winnebago, which includes 33 school districts and more than 190 schools. Students within the Professional Education Program at UW Oshkosh will be assigned to field placements within this region.
Exceptions to the COEHS field experience service region policy include:
- Approved internship
- Pre-approved urban or tribal setting
- On-the-job student teaching (graduate students)
- Designated bilingual placement
- Personal extenuating circumstances such as health issues or spouse/domestic partner job relocation (requires department approval and an additional application found in N/E 113)
All COEHS program students requesting placement outside of the designated service region will be required to submit a separate application to the respective department(s) via the Office of Field Experiences and, if approved, pay an out-of-area fee. This charge is assessed to offset the supervision and travel budget for the Office of Field Experiences; $750/semester for undergraduate and graduate students. For graduate students who are in on-the-job student teaching, the amount will be $375.
