Updated on April 16, 2019 – Dates Effective for Summer 2019 Internships
April 1, 2019 – Unaffiliated Internship Deadline
Last day to notify the Internship Coordinator that your internship site needs an affiliation agreement with IUP and be sure it will be considered. After this date, applications that require an affiliation agreement will be processed but possibly not in time to be approved for a May 13th start.
April 15, 2019 – Affiliated Internship Deadline
Deadline to turn in required documents: Internship Application, written offer, and training certificates to the Internship Coordinator. Internship applications may still be submitted but each passing day makes it less likely that the internship will be reviewed and approved in time to start on May 13th.
May 3, 2019 (End of Spring Semester) – Registration for Internships Begins
You will be notified by email when you are able to register for your internship credits and the CRN# for your section will be included in that email. Don’t pester the internship coordinator.
May 10, 2019 – Registration for Internships Ends
If you are not registered for your internship by this date, you will be dropped from the internship for the summer. This is not reversible.
May 13, 2019
Earliest day to begin your internship.
May 20, 2019
Earliest day to begin your internship if you have below a 2.0 during the Spring semester. This is necessary to verify your spring grades were high enough to meet the 2.0 or higher GPA prerequisite for COMM 493.
June 17, 2019
Last possible date to start the internship and still have enough time to complete the 360 hours before the end of the summer term. You are strongly warned to start your internship well before this date to provide yourself with national holidays, site holidays (if any), sick days, and personal days (if provided by your internship site). This only works if you document 40 hours of working on your COMM 493 materials outside of your 40 hour work week.
August 8, 2019
End of the summer term. Internship hours must be completed by this date.
