REGISTRATION PROCEDURE FOR INTERNSHIPS
1. The student must complete the Application for Permission to Register for a Graduate Internship and secure all appropriate signatures required in Section III.
Note: Internships cannot be financed through graduate assistantship awards. Internships can only be conducted at off-campus sites.

3. Registration for an internship must follow these procedures:
(a) The student must make financial arrangements for payment of appropriate fees prior to the proposed starting date
of the internship experience or course. Billing and payments are to be handled through the Bursar’s Office, and;
(b) The student must schedule the course after making payment.
4. Failure by the student to register (as outlined in #3 above) carries the same requirements for registration as other University courses:
(a) The assessment of a late registration fee if registration is not completed prior to the start of the intern-
ship experience, and;
(b) Denial of permission to add the course after the one week add period or equivalent time during the summer session.
5. For internships during the summer, students must complete registration prior to the projected beginning date approved for the internship, which includes making financial arrangements for payment of appropriate fees.
6. Six-month internships (similar to the Pennsylvania State Civil Service Commission Computer Systems Intern) must follow the following registration procedure:
(a) If the Internship commences in May or June and ends in December, the student must register in the summer for
a minimum of 9 semester hours and in the subsequent Fall Semester for 15 semester hours, *
(b) If the Internship commences in January ending in June, the student must register in the Spring Semester for 15
semester hours and in the subsequent summer session for a minimum of 9 semester hours*.
7. All clearances required by the host site must be in place prior to the commencement of the internship.
8. The original application must be returned to the Office of Graduate Studies.
*Students are required to enroll for a total of 24 credits for a six-month internship. However, only 15 credits will apply toward fulfilling degree requirements.
