Updated on August 21, 2020 – Dates Effective for Summer 2021 Internships
November 8, 2020 11:00 pm – Deadline to confirm your attendance for the University Commencement Ceremony
November 15, 2020 – Deadline to apply for graduation in May.
April 1, 2021 – Deadline to apply for graduation in August.
This is the date that matters most to seniors who are completing their internships this summer.
April 30, 2021 (End of Spring Semester) – Absolute Deadline for All Applications
The absolute deadline for internship applications, affiliated or not. No internship applications will be accepted after this date. If you are already applied for and were assigned to a COMM Department Remote Internship, you may convert it to an external internship through the end of June 2021. You may only continue to seek and negotiate for an external internship if you applied for and were assigned to a COMM Department Remote Internship prior to April 30, 2021.
May 3, 2021 (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 7, 2021 – 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 10, 2021
The earliest day to begin your internship.
May 17, 2021
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.
June 14, 2021
Last possible date to start the internship and still have enough time to complete the 360 hours (undergraduate requirement) 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 course materials outside of your 40-hour workweek.
August 6, 2021
End of the summer term. Internship hours must be completed by this date.
