As a graduate student in the School of Education, you will have opportunities to work directly with students in classrooms before graduation.
To be placed in a school for fieldwork, contact Joy Voss to schedule an appointment and fill out the field placement preference form. For every 35 hours you spend at fieldwork, you will earn one credit hour. Time is kept in a fieldwork log and should be included in your Office of Field Experience folder.
You will need to complete the following clearance documents and share them in your SOE Field Office Google folder before attending a site:
- Code of Ethics
- Release of Information form
- FBI Background Check and Missouri Child Abuse and Neglect Check Process
- Tuberculosis test results
- Placement preference form
- Protecting God's Children

If you have lost or need a new social security card, you can apply for a new one through the Social Security Administration.
In order to maintain your privacy, the clearance documents are only seen by the Office of Educational Field Experiences faculty and staff who have completed specific security training. These documents are securely stored physically and digitally in accordance with SLU's Office of University Compliance regulations.
