Academic Internship Registration Process

Step 1: Talk to the 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 four additional requirements outlined below.

Requirements for Academic Internships

Students completing the internship for academic credit must complete four 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
  4. Review and sign an Internship Learning Agreement (only accessible after the Academic Internship Application has been approved by the Department Chair)

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Deadline for each semester as noted on the Academic Calendar (DeLand Campus) or students risk being administratively withdrawn from their internships courses.

Internship Evaluations

Evaluations of academic internships are available for both students and internship site supervisors. These evaluations are provided as templates for Faculty Internship Instructors. Each evaluation can be customized per departmental needs.
