School Library Media Practicum Application

Please fill out the application below to apply for a School Library Media practicum. You will be contacted with registration information once your application is received and approved. If you do not immediately receive a confirmation email of your application submission, please contact the practicum coordinator.

SIS cannot recommend School Library Media endorsement for students outside the state of Michigan.

All practicum placements must be conducted within a Michigan K-12 school under the direction of a certified school librarian with 3 or more years of experience in a school library. However, out-of-state students are welcome to take the 2 SLM content-specific classes (INF 7310 and INF 7320) as part of the general MLIS degree. Non-Michigan students must independently determine the SLM licensure pathways in their states and complete their school library practicum through the endorsement body in that state if necessary.

Additional information is available on the Practicum webpage.

Please note there are several practicum opportunities. Please be sure to fill out the appropriate application: library services, information management, archival administration/DCM or school library media.
