Congratulations on securing an internship! To ensure a smooth process for earning academic credit for your internship, please follow the steps below. (To download a PDF of the checklist, CLICK HERE.)
Student should register and attend Internship Prep Seminars the semester PRIOR to their first academic internship. This can be done from the Internship webpage. If you are studying abroad and plan an internship upon your return, please sign up for the seminars in advance of your trip abroad.
Student should talk with their internship site supervisor to develop a list of duties. This will be needed for your registration form. Often, supervisors also want to know how many hours are required. Please share with them — 1 credit = 80 work hours, 2 credits = 160 hours.
Once you have obtained your internship, please sign up to ‘Register for the Internship Course’with Internship Director Prof. Nagatha Tonkins from the Internship web page. You will receive an online registration link prior to your appointment in the reminder email. Please complete the form in advance of your appointment. If a student is completing an internship abroad, the student must also visit the Isabella Cannon International Centre and complete the ‘Independent Elon Program Abroad (IEPA) Student Information Form.’
Professor Tonkins will email your site supervisor to verify your academic credit, to review your learning goals and duties and to provide school requirements.
Registration will be processed and student added to Moodle after completion of seminars. Please attend the class meeting on Reading Day (or first week of class in the fall/spring) to review the syllabus.
The Bursar’s office will bill you if this is a summer course or you exceed the maximum credit hours during the regular term.
