Internships - Student

Internships are an opportunity for you to link your academic courses and theory with practice. Internships are temporary, on-the-job experiences intended to help you identify how your studies in the classroom apply to the workplace. Internships are individually arranged by the student in collaboration with a faculty member in their major or program of study, and their supervisor at the workplace.
Student responsibilities:

  1. You must be a student in good standing (GPA of 2.0 or higher) and completed 30 credits or more.
  2. You must find your own employer or worksite to host the internship experience. The Career Center will assist you with application materials, and referrals to area employers, but it is your responsibility to apply and get hired. Internships must align with your academic program, and offer you an opportunity to apply your previous coursework, or gain more knowledge of your field. A great place to start looking is snow.edu/handshake.
  3. You may not “double-dip” and receive credit for both an internship and a course that asks for similar experiential education experiences in the same semester.
  4. Once you have an employer lined up, visit your academic Department Chair or Intern Coordinator in your major. Not all majors sponsor internship credit. Scroll down for a list of approved academic departments.
  5. You will complete a signed contract with your department chair or faculty internship coordinator, and the employer listing the duties, goals, and objectives of the internship. Click here for a copy of the Learning Agreement form
  6. Complete a Course Add form with your assigned Faculty Mentor or Department Chair and have them sign it. Find the Course Add Form here. Take the signed Course Add Form to the Registrar’s Office. You will pay a $25 per credit course fee. You may need to pay for the additional course credit if your course load is below 10 credits or above 20.
  7. You must complete assignments listed as part of your contracted goals and objectives, and turn them in by deadlines assigned with your academic department. Assignments often include:
    • Work Supervisor Evaluation
    • Work Documentation or Hourly Log
    • Reflection Essay
    • Journal
    • Other assignments required by your Faculty mentor. May include a portfolio, interview transcript, primary and/or secondary research paper, completed work project, multi-media report, etc.
