Steps to completing your academic internship (for credit)
Here are the steps you need to take in order to begin your academic internship. If you have any questions about the process, please see your Faculty Internship Instructor.
- Review Internship Basics. Students are responsible for understanding the role they play in creating a valuable and worthwhile internship experience.
- Complete the Internship Basics Survey This provides confirmation you have read and understand your role in the internship process and agree to meet all obligations.
- Find an internship position. It is the responsibility of the student to secure an internship that will fulfill the requirements of their academic program.
- If you are unsure what constitutes an internship or if an internship you have located will count as college credit, speak to your faculty internship instructor.
- If you need help finding an internship or need career coaching or resume help, contact Career Services.
- After you find your internship:
- Complete the Academic Internship Contact Survey. This provides important contact information for your Work-Site Supervisor and ensures your supervisor receives all necessary evaluations and other related paperwork.
- Get a signed Academic Internship Agreement Form and deliver the signed agreement to your Faculty Internship Instructor.
- Pick up your registration form from your Faculty Internship Instructor. Almost done! Once you deliver your SIGNED Academic Internship Agreement, you’ll receive a registration form granting you permission to add the appropriate internship course. This form MUST be given to Tina Reed in the Registrar’s office located on the upper-level of the Williams Building.
- You cannot start your internship until you are registered for your internship course.
- You cannot register until you have completed the Academic Survey and submitted both a signed internship agreement and Academic Internship Contact Sheet. No Exceptions!
- If for any reason you are unable to register for your internship at this point, please your Faculty Internship Instructor.
You are now ready to begin your internship!
