  Who Should Complete an Internship?
 


 

       Interns must meet the following criteria:

ü      Have at least a 2.5 overall GPA

ü      Have completed SCOM Core with “C” or better

ü      Have at least 75 hours of course credit

ü      Have completed  successfully (with a C or better) the courses relevant to the planned internship.

 

How to arrange for your internship:

1.  Think early in the fall semester of your junior year about internships and begin searching for your site.

2.  Meet with the appropriate internship coordinator to discuss your internship opportunities and to learn how to fill out the forms you will need to complete prior to beginning your internship.

3.  Notify the main SCOM office manager who will create the course for you (SCOM 495a or b). You must then register for the course on e-campus before the Add/Drop deadline.

Mediation/Conflict: Dr. Rozanne Leppington
