After you have logged in to the Internship Application Portal, complete the following steps:
- 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 regarding your internship site.
- Step 3: Internship Learning Objectives – Fill out your Learning Objectives for your Faculty Advisor to review and approve online.
- Step 4: Internship Site Approval Form Upload – Print your auto-populated Internship Site Approval Form and have it signed by your Internship Site Supervisor. Then you will either scan or take a photo of your Internship Site Approval Form and upload it into your online application. (If you need assistance with scanning your form, you may bring it to the Career Development Center in AF 303.)
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 Office of the Registrar to officially register you in your internship course. Please check My Chapman to verify whether you have been registered in your course within that timeframe and contact the Career Development Center at (714) 997-6941 or email@example.com if you have any concerns.
Academic Credits Per Hours Worked
Download Internship Timesheet:
Throughout the course of your internship, you will keep track of your hours on the Internship Timesheet. At the end of the semester, your Internship Site Supervisor will sign the timesheet, and you will scan and upload it to your internship application in the portal.
A few weeks before the semester ends, your Internship 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 Internship Site Supervisor's contact information.
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.
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.
Please refer to the following deadlines regarding internship registration:

Billing for internship credits
Full-time undergraduate students can include Fall or Spring internship credits within the 12 - 18 credits covered by the full-time undergraduate tuition charge. However, Overload Tuition will be charged for every credit in excess of 18. Undergraduates who are enrolled full-time both Fall and Spring semesters can take up to four credits, including internship credits, tuition-free. Internship credits completed in a Summer term will be assessed a tuition cost at the current-year per credit rate.
If you have additional questions, please contact the Career Development Center at (714) 997-6942 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
