Statement of Understanding
- Admission into the TXMI 5910 Internship Program is provisional and will be made public during the spring semester of 2017. Students interested in summer 2017 internships should complete this application by February 10, 2017. At the culmination of spring semester, your GPA will be assessed to ensure that you meet the standards for admission into the program.
- Once you have accepted an internship with a sponsor and have submitted the Internship Agreement Form, you are bound to that employer. Interns are not allowed to change sponsors after an acceptance, unless for extreme circumstances; if that is the case the internship coordinator must be notified before contacting with the sponsor. Not following through on your commitment may result in ineligibility for internships in the future.
- Your internship is worth 3-6 credit hours (150 field hours = 3 credits; 300 field hours = 6 credits). You may begin working earlier than the official start date for the TXMI 5910 course; however you may not begin your internship after June 5, 2017. Interns should carefully judge start and end dates with their employer to ensure that at least 300 hours can be completed by the last official day of the internship.
By agreeing “Yes” this indicates that you are aware of and will abide by these guidelines. You may request a copy of these guidelines for your reference from Clair McClure (firstname.lastname@example.org).
