|Course Prerequisites||Must have completed 12 hours of DAAC courses to be eligible to take practicum courses.|

Students are expected to intern for a total of 320 hours at the selected practicum site for the duration of the semester. Practicum schedules are to be arranged with your site supervisor. All students must attend the scheduled on-campus meetings with the course instructor.
Your practicum attendance is to be treated as a job. If you are not able to keep your schedule, you Must contact the site supervisor in a timely manner, and email your instructor to inform that you will be on site during your scheduled time.
|Course Grading Scale||
Students are expected to keep a time log of their practicum activities in which weekly KSA domains and times are noted (see form provided). The site supervisor must sign completed entries every week. These practicum logs will become part of the student's experience record to document completion of practicum requirements for state counselor intern status.
Students are required to keep these logs up to date and may be asked by the instructor to produce these logs at any time during the semester.
Completion of the required hours for each of the KSA domains will be one of the major components of your grade.
Lamar State College clearly recognizes that the practicum site is in charge of client care, and all services provided. At the request of the practicum site, the college will immediately withdraw any student whose conduct or work may have a detrimental effect on the facility. If a student is withdrawn from an practicum site, a grade of W (withdrawal) will be placed on the studentâ€™s transcript. A studentâ€™s removal from a practicum site may disqualify the student from enrolling in other practicum courses.

Some material in this course may be copyrighted. They may be used only for instructional purposes this semester,
by students enrolled in this course. These materials are being used fairly and legally.
No one may distribute or share these copyrighted materials in any medium or format with anyone outside this class,
including publishing essays with copyrighted material, uploading copyrighted material to Facebook or YouTube, or
painting or performing copyrighted material for public display.
Copyright violation is not the same thing as plagiarism. Plagiarism is intellectual dishonesty. Offenses of plagiarism result in lower grades or failing scores, and professors and the college strictly enforce plagiarism rules. There is never any acceptable use of plagiarism. Copyright violation is a legal offense, punishable by large fines and penalties.
Copyrighted material can be used if permission from the material’s creator is obtained, or if its use meets the standards of fair use in an educational setting. For example, a student can quote a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet in a report without violating copyright but still be guilty of plagiarism if the quotation is not properly documented.
If you are in doubt about what material can be freely used, ask your professor or contact the Dean of Library Services, at (409) 984-6216.
Assessment is a process by which LSCPA can help you learn better and gauge the level of progress you have made to
attain knowledge, skills, beliefs, and values. It also helps your professors understand how to improve teaching
and testing methods in your classes, and it helps each department understand and improve degree and certificate
Periodically LSC-PA will collect assessment data for research and reporting purposes, including statistical data and sometimes copies of your work. Be assured that all material the college uses for assessment purposes will be kept confidential. To ensure anonymity, your name will be removed from any material we use for assessment purposes, including video-recorded performances, speeches, and projects.
If you object to allowing LSC-PA to use your material for assessment purposes, submit a letter stating so to your professor by the 12th class day. You will still be required to participate in whatever assessments are being done; we just won’t use your data.
What’s the difference between assessment and grades? The grades you get on papers, projects, speeches, and assignments are specific types of focused assessment. LSC-PA’s assessment efforts include class grades, surveys, standardized tests, and other tools.
Federal privacy laws apply to college students. This means that college employees, including instructors, cannot
divulge information to third parties, including parents and legal guardians of students. Even if the students are
minors, information about their college work cannot be shared with anyone except in very limited circumstances.
Anyone requesting information about a student should be referred to the Registrar. Instructors will be notified in writing by that Office about what information may be released and to whom.
Please remember that releasing private information about a student, however innocuous it may seem, can be a violation of federal law, with very serious consequences.
Circumstances under which information may be released:
An adult student may submit, to the Registrar, a handwritten, signed note granting permission for release of
information. The note must specify what information may be divulged, and it must specify the name of the person
to whom the information may be given.
The Registrar’s office is located in the Student Center room 303B, and can be reached at (409) 984-6165.
This course helps add to the students’ overall collegiate experience in the following ways:
