FWT Assessment and Evaluative Criteria

A student’s final FWT assessment is based on adherence to due dates, supervisor evaluation(s), meeting the required number of work hours, and a quality reflective project. A student will receive an assessment of “Pass,” “Marginal Pass,” “Fail,” or “Incomplete” for FWT.

Reflective Projects and Reflective Project Extensions

First-year students fulfill their FWT reflective requirement through the first-year reflection essay, which incorporates reflections on both academic progress and FWT. All other students complete a FWT reflective project, which may be an essay, blog, video, or formal presentation. Click here for details on these options and the availability of due date extensions.

FWT for International Students

Department of Homeland Security visa regulations affect international students' FWT considerations during their first nine months in the United States. Check here for details on this, as well as on Curricular Practical Training, which provides international students with options for off-campus internships after their first nine months.
