Curriculum and Instruction field experience candidates (Adolescence, TESOL and Childhood Education majors) must register for the field experience through myOswego.  After registering, attend the required Sign-up Days to fill out a Tk20 application.  This typically occurs at the end of the semester prior to each placement. The "Sign-Up" is posted on the Clinical Practice and Partnerships Office; plan for 15-20 minutes to complete the sign-ups. 

Note: You must be registered in MyOswego for the appropriate aligned course and for a 1-credit EDU 303 you must allow for about a 5-hour block of time in your schedule for placements to occur (driving time and placement time).   A one-credit hour placement is usually 3 hours per week, and placements may be located up to an hour away from Oswego. 
Required Field Experience Sign Ups include:
  • Required Felony Questionnaire in Banner
  • Required Tk20 Application

All C&I candidates who are registered for an EDU 303 field experience will be responsible for attending two mandatory meetings during the Block One semester:
