Internship opportunities are available in all colleges. Internship is designed to provide eligible students with practical work experience in their chosen field of study while earning academic credit. For details regarding specific program options and eligibility requirements including GPA, please refer to the current catalog for the appropriate campus. Students are also encouraged to contact Experiential Education & Career Services for more details. For locations, hours and contact information, please consult the JWU Directory.
Students are able to register up to one year in advance of their internship semester and are urged to register early to secure their internship in their chosen semester. Students with a required internship who do not register by the stated deadline will be automatically registered for a semester by Experiential Education & Career Services. For more information, visit Internships.
Graduate students need to meet with Experiential Education & Career Services prior to registering for internship. These students must have their internships approved by the graduate department chair. Once approved, Experiential Education & Career Services will register the student for internship.
Students interested in participating in an internship outside of the U.S. can find details on International Internships.
Internships for International Students
Due to immigration regulations, international students are only permitted to participate in an internship (curricular practical training) if it is included in their curriculum program. All internships are subject to an approval process through Experiential Education & Career Services and the International Student Services Office. International students must submit all paperwork to Experiential Education & Career Services at least two weeks before the end of the previous semester to allow enough time to process the internship request. Failure to do so will result in the internship not being approved. Note: International students who work on campus must consult with Student Employment and the International Student Services Office to determine if they can continue to work on campus while completing an internship.
