The general purpose of an internship is to give you practical experience applying the theory and content of coursework in your field. Internships are typically considered a capstone experience, taken toward the latter half of your academic career. The internship guides listed below provide important information about setting up and carrying out your internship. All internships must be approved by your program's internship coordinator prior to starting the internship. Each guide includes the necessary forms and a sample syllabus for the internship course.

For All Students

Please review your program's internship guide below. Then complete your program's internship application Google form (link below). You must submit your completed internship contract with signatures 2 weeks before your proposed start date!  Failure to do this will result in a delayed start. If you miss these specific deadlines your internship WILL NOT BE APPROVED. 

Students may not be on site until registration due to insurance liabilities and that they will not earn credit until registration is complete. No retro-registrations will be approved.

An overall 2.0 GPA and junior or senior status is required to register for an undergraduate internship.
