»Internship Process and Registration

Welcome to the Internship Process

For those who are interested in having an internship experience, there are many ways to search for an internship site. The Career Development Center has an online database, Panther Connect, which students are free to browse and explore for potential job and internship opportunities.

If you have already secured an internship and are interested in acquiring academic credit for that experience, please follow the internship registration instructions and deadlines below.

Internship Checklist

After you have logged in to the Internship Application Portal, complete the following steps:

Download the Internship Site Approval Form:

http://www.chapman.edu/students/services/career-development/_files/pdfs-docs/web-internship-site-approval-form%202.pdf

  • Step 1: Intern Responsibilities Agreement – Click a series of check boxes to indicate that you acknowledge and accept the policies and agreements for earning academic credit for your internship.
  • Step 2: Internship Registration Information – Fill out the required information, which is the same as what will be filled out manually on the first page of your Internship Site Approval Form.
  • Step 3: Internship Learning Objectives – Fill out the required information, which is the same as what will be filled out manually on the second page of your Internship Site Approval Form.
  • Step 4: Internship Site Approval Form Upload – You will need to print and fill out your Internship Site Approval Form. Be sure to have it filled out and signed by both your Site Supervisor and Faculty Internship Advisor. Then you will either take a photo of or scan both pages of your Internship Site Approval Form and upload them into your online application in one document together. We will need to have both pages of the form with both signatures on these forms in order to approve your internship. You may also bring your forms to the Career Development Center in AF 303 for assistance with scanning.

Once you have completed the 4-Step Internship Application, your Faculty Internship Advisor will receive an email notification to review your internship application for approval. Once he or she has approved your internship application, we review your application at the Career Development Center. Once it is approved, you will receive an automatic email, and it will take 3-5 business days for the Registrar to officially register you in your internship course. Please check WebAdvisor to verify whether you have been registered in your course within that timeframe and contact the Career Development Center if you have any concerns.

Timesheet

Download Internship Timesheet: http://www.chapman.edu/students/services/career-development/_files/pdfs-docs/internship-timesheet-new.pdf

Throughout the course of your internship, you will keep track of your hours on the Internship Timesheet. At the end of the semester, your site supervisor will sign the timesheet, and you will scan and upload it to your internship application in the portal.

Performance Evaluation

A few weeks before the semester ends, your site supervisor will receive an email from the Career Development Center with a link to an online performance evaluation, which they will need to complete in order for you to receive a grade for your internship course.

This link is sent to the email address you have provided in your internship application, so please be sure to let the Career Development Center know of any changes to your site supervisor's contact information.

Exit Survey

As the semester comes to an end, you will receive an email from the Career Development Center with a link to an exit survey regarding your experience at your internship. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and will help us continue to improve upon the internship process.

Grading

In addition to completing all of the above steps, you will also need to turn in the assignment(s) that you and your faculty internship advisor previously agreed upon at the start of your internship (i.e. daily journal, presentation, essay, etc.) by their determined due date(s) in order to be eligible to receive an academic grade from your faculty internship advisor.
