UWO Service 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.
