Internship, Practica, Field Experience, Senior Internship Registration Requirements

Generally, the policy on internships, practica, field experiences, and senior internship requires registration for the experience in the quarter(s) that the requirements for the course are actually fulfilled.

Be sure to work closely with your adviser/program coordinator to ensure proper registration and fulfillment.
