Congratulations on your decision to consider an internship! An Indiana University Southeast internship is an
educational experience related to your degree program and career plan which allows you to apply what you have learned in the
classroom to real-world situations. A student can obtain up to two years of experience prior to graduation. An internship al-
lows you to explore and refine your career focus. An internship involves a student, an employer supervisor, and a sponsor
from the university.
Learning objectives are established by the faculty member, student, and employer and are then recorded in an official
Learning Agreement. (The program does not allow for the employer supervisor and the sponsor from the university to be the
same individual.) Also, the site supervisor can not be a relative of the student.
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 Develop-
ment Center for it to appear on the your transcript. Many internships lead to full-time, permanent, professional employment
upon graduation. Some interns are invited to stay in the internship until graduation.

A minimal internship program fee is due at the mock interview appointment**
