Academic Internship Program
Faculty Reference: AIP Policies & Procedures
Regis College juniors and seniors are eligible to complete internships for academic credit during academic semesters and the summer. Students interested in pursuing internships should consult their departmental advisors, register for the internship course, and utilize the services of the Center for Internships and Career Services.
An internship is a short-term, supervised learning experience. It provides the student with the opportunity to observe and participate in a practical work setting, under the direction of a professional in the field. An internship requires a signed agreement among the student, faculty sponsor, and site supervisor to establish learning goals, determine activities, and evaluate the learning experience.
Students must complete a minimum of eight hours per week, for a minimum of ninety-six hours for the semester. Certain majors require more specific time commitments so students should confirm their schedule with their faculty sponsor by the second week of classes.
Internship Agreement Forms must be submitted to the Center for Internships and Career Services by the end of Add/Drop period for that semester. As with all courses, students must be attending their internship site by this deadline date in order to remain in the internship course. Starting an internship after this date requires approval by the faculty sponsor to ensure completion of the minimum ninety-six hours for the semester.
