Field placement gives online students the opportunity to step out into the real world and gain valuable experience that will benefit them in the future. FSU provides field work coordinators for certain regions of Florida and holds many contracts within the state.
For out of state students, you will work with a field work coordinator as a team, as you are going to be more familiar with agencies in your immediate community. A field work coordinator will reach out a semester in advance to assist with locating a placement.
We should note, FSU cannot guarantee specific hours or placements and you should not rely on nights/weekends, as these are typically done during regular business hours.
It is important to stay informed while a student at FSU. That’s why it is recommended that you check all platforms on a regular basis. However, Canvas and FSU email should be checked every day.
FSU gives students a robust learning experience in an online learning environment. The classwork can be conducted anywhere, and in many cases, when the student is available. The format of online classes varies based on the professor. Some courses are going to require discussion boards, others are writing intensive, while some professors provide recorded lectures. The program is asynchronous, however, there are two classes that require weekend travel to Tallahassee for an intensive skill building experience. There is also an advanced level course that requires meeting via zoom on one Saturday during the semester of this upper level course.
The FSU portal is where you can access registration, financial awards and your personal information.
Canvas contains information about orientation, registration and your classes. Additionally, Canvas is where professors post all of their content/lessons for students.
Finally, FSU email, accessed through Outlook, is your school email. Important academic emails come through here from the university and staff. All three allow students to study remotely and stay informed.
