We welcome you to this important phase of your MSW education.
If you are currently employed at a human services agency and would like to complete an employment-based field placement, review the guidelines to make sure you are eligible.
By following the steps listed below, you begin the process of securing your field placement for the upcoming academic year. We are careful to list only information that is important for you to know. We look forward to working with you.
When application materials are ready, a notification email is sent to the MSW Listserv.
If you are a newly admitted student, you will receive instructions with your registration packet once you have sent in your deposit.
Application materials consist of the following:
Current Students seeking placement outside of Erie and Niagara counties:
all materials due November 1
Current Students seeking placement in Erie and Niagara Counties:
application and cover letter/resume due November 1 with agency request form (advanced year only) due February 1
all materials due two weeks after receiving the registration packet
This system has been specially designed to bring together information for Field placement in a way that is convenient for MSW students.
