Application Information

Students must be in good academic standing to enroll in a clinic, and all courses require an application. Clinical courses generally fill up, so interested students should apply as soon as possible.

Please consult the Eligibility and Enrollment Information page for information about course offerings, credit, and prerequisites.

First round applications for Fall 2021 have been processed and decisions have been sent out.
Applications may be considered on a rolling basis, if space remains. Review the chart below for clinics with openings for the Fall.  

All application materials are submitted electronically.  Questions about the application process should be directed to Sonja Hartley, Senior Program Coordinator, at

You may apply for one, two or three clinics, and you must rank them on the General Clinic Application in order of preference. Apply only to clinics in which you are prepared to enroll. If you are accepted into a clinic,  your name will not stay on the waitlist for the other clinics.

NOTE: Do not use this form to apply for an advanced clinic. For rules about advanced clinic and application instructions visit the SAO page on advanced clinics.

Students will be notified when the clinic admission decisions have been made. Clinics are not part of the online early registration system. Each student admitted to a clinic must add it during the next available add/drop period and adjust his or her schedule. At the end of the applicable add/drop period, students admitted to a clinic will be dropped from any conflicting classes.

Students not admitted to a clinic during early registration may apply subsequently if spots remain available.
