Office of Field Experience

Welcome to the Office of Field Experience!

If your degree program requires a field experience or student teaching, the Office of Field Experience (OFE) supports you in setting up your field experience or student teaching so that it meets United States University’s academic and professional standards. The OFE determines if students have met all the requirements necessary to participate in field experience or student teaching courses.
