An internship gives you, the student, an opportunity to earn academic credit and possible income while applying classroom theory to a realistic work setting. The program enables employers, students, and the college to share in planned and meaningful work experiences.
The college Internship Supervisor is Dr. Julie Taylor-Costello, Library 103,
In order to register for an internship, each student must complete four forms. Failure to complete these forms accurrately will prolong and possibly hinder you from being registerd for your internship. The deadline to register for an internship is always the last day to withdraw for that semester's academic calendar. Be sure to start these forms early, so you can be registered before the deadline.
Before completing the forms, please read the following:
It is the responsibility of the student to find and secure their own internship - we have many resources on the career services website, as well as a career center that can help you find openings. Also, if you have a place or position in mind, you can always contact that organization, or visit their website to see what possible internships they have, or even if they would create one for you.
Please keep in mind, if you are currently working for an organization, you CANNOT use your current position as your internship. You can, however, use your place of employment. You would need to establish a special project or another area in which to perform your internship. If you choose to use your current place of employment for your internship, you will be required to submit a copy of your job description along with your objectives for your internship.
Please be sure to do the following:
- You NEED to meet with your advisor to discuss how an internship fits in with your program of study and how it fits in with your degree plan.
- As part of your internship you will be registered for an online course which you will need to pay for and participate in.
- For every one credit hour you take towards your internship you will need to complete 40 hours of work at your internship site.
