In appreciation for the learning experience provided to our practicum students Wheelock College issues one voucher per student to each supervising practitioner to complete 3, 4, 5, or 6 credit practicum. Supervising practitioners may use their voucher for any course or institute taking place on campus or at other locations. Vouchers may be used only by persons employed by the site and cannot be transferred to persons outside the school system. Vouchers are sent directly to the supervising practitioner or site supervisor. If not used by the supervising practitioner, vouchers may be used by other site personnel; however, they may not be transferred to persons employed at any other site nor to a part-time or full-time student who is matriculated at Wheelock College. Vouchers may only be used by persons able to demonstrate current employment at the practicum site to which the voucher was issued. The voucher must be signed by a member of the administrative staff to validate for registration. Be prepared to show proof of employment.
Vouchers are valid for one calendar year immediately following the semester in which the Wheelock College student was placed at the practicum site. There are no extensions. No more than one voucher may be used per semester by any individual. Students will be responsible for payment of the $10 registration fee.
Individuals not enrolled in a degree program may use vouchers for up to four undergraduate or two graduate courses. Non-matriculated graduate students may apply for status of lifelong learner and continue to register for graduate courses. Vouchers may be used only once for one graduate or undergraduate course, regardless of the credits assigned to the course (1, 2, or 3 credits). Vouchers may not be used for field courses, practica or independent study. The voucher will be honored when presented for registration accompanied by a registration fee. A bachelor's degree is required for graduate registration.
