Internship Process

The Internship Learning Agreement

The ILA is completed by the student, in collaboration with the faculty internship advisor and the host site supervisor. The Agreement serves several purposes:

  • To provide a framework or structure for the internship experience
  • To serve as a reminder to all learning partners (student, supervisor, and faculty sponsor) of the purpose and activities of the internship
  • To provide the basis for evaluation and validation of the learning experience
  • The Online ILA can be found here.

Students and faculty complete the Internship Learning Agreement (ILA) within these deadlines:

  • The second Friday of the fall semester (Fall Internship)
