Field Experience Expectations

  • All field experience hours are attached to specific education courses. 
  • All field experiences must be documented on FEDS. Additionally, students should retain copies of all documents for their records. 
  • At all times a fully licensed educator must supervise all field experience hours.
  • Field experiences cannot be financially compensated.
  • Field experiences must be completed in a classroom setting while school is in session and students are present. Students who work full-time will need to make arrangements with their employer to be absent from work for a period of time.
  • Field experience hours are a part of the coursework in DePaul University's education programs; therefore, hours previously earned will not be substituted for the required hours.
  • Professional behavior and dress are expected at all times.
  • Each field experience is a potential student teaching placement or employer. Be professional at all times.
