Your appeal may be conditionally approved. This means you must meet additional conditions before you receive full approval which may include a phone or webcam interview.

If you are approved to repeat the practicum, you will need to repeat all tasks and hours associated with your practicum. Previously logged hours may not be applied to the second practicum attempt.
