Academic Internship Course Registration: Faculty

To receive academic credit for an internship, students must enroll in the internship course offered by the academic department and complete the Academic Internship Course Registration, which is overseen by Career and Professional Development.

Initiate Academic Internship Course Registration

  1. Meet with the student to learn about the internship they have obtained and how it relates to their academics. The Internship Approval Criteria, developed by the Faculty Internship Council, provide a rubric for evaluating internship experiences eligible for academic credit.  Faculty Internship Course Instructors may choose to utilize the Internship Pre-Approval Form (Fillable PDF) to gain specific information about the student's internship.  If utilized, the information in this form may be useful to the student when they complete the Academic Internship Application in myStetson.
  2. If you determine that the student's experience meets your department's criteria for academic internships, log in to myStetson to submit a Permission of Instructor (PI) override to allow the student to register for the Academic Internship Course.
