To apply for The Washington Center (TWC) you must meet the following requirements:
Receive approval from Ball State’s campus liaison to The Washington Center
Contact Barb Stedman at 765-285-1024 to schedule an appointment to discuss eligibility and the application process. Do not submit your application until you’ve received her approval.
Required Application Materials
Two letters of recommendation
A detailed checklist of application materials is available on the center’s website.
After your application has been submitted in its entirety (including letters and transcript), barring any complications, you’ll be notified that you have been accepted to The Washington Center. You’ll then work with a TWC internship coordinator to arrange phone interviews and ultimately secure an internship.
Program Dates and Deadlines
See the TWC website for upcoming dates and deadlines.
Make every effort to meet the “priority deadline,” especially if you’re applying for the summer term, which is the most competitive period for TWC internships.
After You’ve Accepted an Internship Offer
It’s very important that you meet with Barb Stedman to arrange for your academic credit. You need to allow plenty of time before the end of the semester to meet with appropriate faculty or academic advisors in your department and complete the needed course credit paperwork.
After that paperwork is completed and course sections have been created for you, the final step is to register for the courses.
Don’t leave campus without completing these vital steps!
