Chrysalis House is limited in the number of students who can be properly supervised during their practica. Also, most students begin in the Fall semester and continue for two semesters or a full calendar year. This extremely limits the number of slots available for Spring and Summer semesters. It is highly recommended that applications for any placement be submitted, at least, six months before the semester begins.
