Practical Instruction

Some courses and programs of study require students to participate in practical instruction, which may include internships, practicums, clinical placements, field experience or other types of hands-on demonstration by students of concepts or theories learned in instructional settings on campus or online. Practical instruction may require students to travel to approved sites throughout the Maricopa Community College District service area, and may also require students to meet eligibility requirements such as fingerprint clearance, background checks, drug testing, and operating various types of motor vehicles. Complete information on practical instruction can be found in recruitment materials and student handbooks for specific instructional programs.
