  1. Educational Agreement Due »

    May 28, 2015 (all day)

    Educational Agreement is due to the Office of Field Instruction for review.

    For this due date, the student must complete and submit their Identifying Information (Tab 1) and their Assignments (Tab 2). The Field Instructor must review and approve Tabs 1 and 2. 

    The Educational Agreement must be fully approved by the Field Instructor before it is ready for your Field Liaison's approval. Therefore OFI suggests submitting the form to your Field Instructor one week prior to the deadline. This gives the Field Instructor time to review and approve your work before the deadline.
