The Field Office requires students to complete an application for practicum placement.   

BSW students will complete practicum placement the Fall/Spring of their Senior year.  Students who are to begin practicum in the Fall will receive invitations to apply, via their UofL email, for placement after attending the mandatory Field Information Session in November and the placement process will begin in January for the Fall semester.

MSSW 1st year Generalist and 2nd year Specialized placements are completed in the Fall/Spring, or Spring/Summer semesters (Summer/Spring for Specialized CFT).  Students will be notified, via their UofL email, in January (for Fall/Spring placements) and in August (for Spring/Summer placements) to complete the application for placement.  If you are not notified to apply during the timeframe mentioned, please feel free to contact the Field Office, fieldedu@louisville.edu.  Please make sure you check your junk/spam folders as well, to ensure you receive the invitation to apply.

Upon completion, the application will be assigned to a Field Coordinator that will reach out to locate and help secure your placement.  Please see the deadlines for application below.  It is suggested that you complete your application as soon as possible to avoid a delay in the placement process. 

*If you are not notified to apply for Field in January (for Fall placement) or September (for Spring placement), please contact the Field Office at fieldedu@louisville.edu
