Student Affairs Internship Information
How do I obtain an internship?
Throughout your time in your graduate program, make a note of offices in which you might want to work in as an intern. Once you locate an office that interests you, contact a student affairs professional in that office to discuss internship possibilities. It is never too early to lock down an internship, so evaluate the offices carefully and ask questions. Typically, this department will request a meeting or interview to discuss your expectations and goals for the position.
What is the application process?
When enrolled in an internship class, your professor will send you the appropriate paperwork to lock down an internship. Simply take the material to your potential supervisor, and the internship is official.
