CDC Internship Module

An Indiana University Southeast Internship is an educational experience related to a student’s degree program and career plan which allows the student to apply what he/she has learned to real work situations. An Internship involves a student, an employer supervisor and a sponsor of the university.

Learning objectives are established by the faculty member, student, and employer and then recorded in an official Learning Agreement. The program does not allow for the employer supervisor and the sponsor of the university to be the same individual.

An Internship may be a paid or unpaid experience and a student may earn from zero to six academic credit hours (depending on the number of hours worked per week). It is necessary for the internship to be registered through Career Development Center in order for it to appear on the student’s transcript.
