My Simmons

Generalist/Foundation Year Practicum

Students beginning their generalist/foundation practicum year each fall are contacted the prior spring. For incoming, full-time students, this process begins after a tuition deposit is paid.

  • Students submit a placement intake form and a current resume to the Practicum Education Department.
  • After receipt of the materials, the student schedules a placement meeting with the Practicum Faculty.
  • Following that meeting, students begin the application process,  and if selected will interview  with an agency.
  • If both parties approve of the arrangement Simmons finalizes the placement.
  • If the match seems unpromising, the student begins  the application process again.
