Course Enrollment Forms

What is a Course Enrollment Form (CEF)?
Our office uses this form to collect:

    • Verification of your eligibility and completion of the Field Study prerequisites 
    • Your field study course selection (SE195, 195W, 106W), so we know which course we should authorize you for if you are fully eligible.
    • Your placement information, so we know where you will be completing your fieldwork hours and which supervisor to contact. (Including Site number, Site Name, and Supervisor Information: Name, title, email address)

ATTENTION: Do not submit this form if you have NOT received and accepted an official offer from one of our approved placements. A copy of your submission will be sent to the site supervisor you list on the form. Submitting a placement without an official offer is grounds for academic dishonesty.
