Self Placement Guidelines

Completing a Self-placement

Self-placements can be used to meet the Community- Based Learning and Research requirement for your course IF you have a pre-existing volunteer relationship with an organization, AND the nature of your service work aligns with the learning goals of your course. Students who plan to complete a community-based learning and research self-placement must complete a Self-Placement Form.

SELF-PLACEMENT FORMS ARE DUE ACCORDING TO FACULTY INSTRUCTION.

Self Placement Guidelines

1) What is the name of your service site? Is the organization you chose someone that UW Bothell already works with?

2) Is your organization listed in the drop-down menu?

  • If yes, proceed to step 3, then to the next page
  • If not, please see step 4 for further instructions

3) Select your organization and be sure that the "New organization?" box is UNCHECKED. Select the name of the correct "contact person" from the drop-down menu.
