Each year our Annual Student Meeting is held in August before the beginning of the Fall semester. Here, we share essential program updates and required information for the new academic year, in addition to being entered to win fun door prizes!

We will start our meeting together as colleagues, faculty and staff, and end with breakout sessions of:

  • First-Year Student Orientation

  • Research

We strongly encourage all to attend every year as you will be held responsible for any and all program information shared. Moreover, all students are required to attend at least one annual student meeting as a part of their degree requirements for graduation.

Advancement to Candidacy

Annually in February 

Upon a student's completion of 18 hours of coursework, students become eligible to Advance to Candidacy. Faculty make advancement decisions based on the rubric criteria. Upon advancement, the Department notifies students by letter when they advance to candidacy. Failure to meet the rubric criteria at a score of three (3) or higher results in remediation of the student or dismissal from the program.

Practicum Orientation

This orientation session will help students learn what to expect during their internship and provide tools and tips to maximize their experience. All students are required to attend at least one Practicum Orientation as a part of their degree requirements for graduation.

  • Fall 2022 Practicum Orientation: Breakout session at the Annual Student Meeting (Aug 19th)
