Academic Internship Registration Process

Step 1: Talk to Department Chair/Internship Coordinator to find out criteria for an internship to be approved for credit in your major or minor

Step 2: Complete an Internship Pre-Approval Checklist (Template) to the best of your ability

Step 3: Meet with your Faculty Instructor to review the Checklist

Step 4: If the Checklist is approved, request "Instructor Permission" to register for the internship course through MyStetson

Step 5: Register for the course through MyStetson and complete the 3 additional requirements outlined below (if registering between September 1-7, please e-mail registrar@stetson.edu in order to enroll)

Requirements for Academic Internships

Students completing the internship for academic credit must complete 3 requirements. Those registered for the course can access the needed forms, dates/times of the orientations, and track the status of their registration under the One Stop tab in MyStetson.

  1. Attend one of the offered Internship Orientations
  2. Complete an Internship Liability Waiver
  3. Complete an Academic Internship Application

All of these requirements must be completed by the Internship Registration Deadline for each semester as noted on the Academic Calendar (DeLand Campus) or students risk being administratively withdrawn from their internships courses.

We also recommend that you complete the Internship Learning Agreement. The Learning Agreement provides a basis of understanding between Stetson University and its faculty instructor, the student intern, and the host organization.
