FALL 2020 & SPRING 2021 Clinical Placement Applications
**If you are currently a Clinical I student for the Spring 2020 semester you do not need to reapply because your placement was made for two (2) semesters.**
We are excited to announce the launch of Chalk & Wire as part of our continued efforts to automate and improve the Clinical Field application process for our Kean University students. On or after April 3, 2020, all Education Major Students with at least 60 credits, and who have taken, or are in process of taking, Sophomore Field (2800) will receive a system-generated email from Chalk & Wire inviting them to sign into their account. If you do not receive a Chalk & Wire email, on April 3, 2020, please reach out to your faculty advisor who can tell you if you are eligible for field and can request a Chalk & Wire account for you.
During Spring 2020 advisement your faculty advisor will approve, if eligible, your Clinical Placement eligibility and you will complete your application in the Chalk & Wire system.
