Internship Paperwork

  • Internship guidelines (PDF) provide all the details for obtaining credit for a professional work experience.
  • A completed internship enrollment form and a student academic ethics form (PDF) are required before the internship coordinator will grant you permission to register for internship credit.
  • A time report is required on a weekly basis during the internship period. You may choose to complete an interactive project time report (PDF) or an interactive daily report (PDF). Use the same time report format throughout your internship.
  • Employers are required to complete two supervisor evaluations during the internship. It is your responsibility as an intern to remind supervisors to complete the forms and to ensure the forms are completed and submitted. Supervisors should go online to complete the supervisor evaluation.
  • At the conclusion of an internship, you are required to complete an online student evaluation form.
  • Please complete the Hometown News Release (PDF) interactive form online. When you have completed the form, print it and give a copy to the journalism internship coordinator, who will forward the information to University Marketing and Communications.
  • Complete a permission form (PDF) so that the department can post the location of your internship on a map.
  • Two short papers are required. A two-page goals summary (PDF) paper is due by the end of the second week of the internship. A three-page assessment (PDF) paper is due at the end of the internship.
  • If you experience inappropriate behavior or sexual harassment (PDF) in the workplace, please contact the internship coordinator immediately.
