Clinical Practice HandbookAt Kansas Wesleyan University, clinical practice is offered during both the fall and spring semester.  Clinical practice is for a full semester (16-weeks) beginning in the fall with the opening of the public school in which the fall candidate is assigned, and in the spring on the opening day of school following the Christmas/winter break in which the spring candidate is assigned.  Candidates seeking a P-12 license shall be placed in the first assignment for eight weeks and then be placed eight weeks in the second assignment.  Candidates wishing to do clinical practices in special education will follow the same split-semester schedule.  They will enroll for 5 semester hours of clinical practice at the elementary level and 5 semester hours in special education.

All candidates will register for ten (10) hours of clinical practice and two (2) hours of clinical practice seminar in the semester they do their clinical practice.
