Community Placement Preference Forms

The Community Placement Preference Form is used to assist the CBL office in assigning a community placement based on your course requirements and your top four preferences.


It's important to understand that a community placement is an integral component of a course and requires consistent weekly engagement. Students will be expected to spend up to two hours (or more dependent on class), outside of class, per week with a local agency/organization

  • Step one: Before completing the preference form, students should carefully assess their weekly availability for a placement by considering their athletic, course, and/or employment commitments.
  • Step two: Review placement options for your course and check out each agency profile. 
  • Step three: When selecting the top four preferences, students should NOT repeat a previous option 

Even though students are asked to select their top four preferences, this does not mean that a student will automatically be given their first choice. Please note that in some cases, it's possible that a student may be given their fourth choice.


Should a student have difficulty finding a community placement that works, they should contact Brenda Papineau at or by phone 315.229.5255 to set up an appointment before the deadline.
