Application for Student Internship or Special Project
The purpose of this form is to request to be considered for enrollment in an internship or special project course credit. You should contact the internship coordinator for preliminary approval before submitting this application. Read all the pertinent pages on this website before submitting the application. Actual enrollment is done through the normal registration process after your application is submitted and approved and you have received the registration permit from the department office.
Important Notes: The duration of an internship course is for whatever period of time allows approximately 250 clock hours of internship-related work activities (about 20 hours/week for 15 weeks, or the equivalent), but no shorter than 10 weeks. (approximately the same amount of time is expected for Special Project courses, but requirements are somewhat more flexible.) This is normally done in a regular long semester. If done in the summer, it covers the ENTIRE summer (minimum 10 weeks). Although the summer internship or project course listing in the schedule may appear as a 5-week course, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A 5-WEEK DURATION FOR THESE EXPERIENCES. You may enroll in either the first or second summer term, but the grade is assigned only at the end of the 10-week summer, after all work hours and reporting obligations are completed.
Also Note: The Internship program does not place students in jobs or projects. We can advise and assist you in your search, so contact us for any help we may be able to offer. You must have a cooperating employer identified before you can submit this application and be approved and enroll for the course.
Please see the "Internship/Project Employer Application" which your employer must submit to us also.
