***Pre-Field Work: The University of Minnesota Duluth requires all students to complete and submit a background criminal check prior to beginning their field placement. Background checks are considered valid for two years from the calendar date that the background check was completed.

Always confirm your schedule with your faculty advisor and follow prerequisite requirements.

Courses taken during May or Summer term (after the first year) can lighten your load during the academic year.
