At UMW, to obtain academic credit for an internship, you have to complete the internship contract. This is a four-way agreement between yourself, the employer hosting the internship, your academic department and the Office of Academic and Career Services.
All contracts must be submitted prior to beginning the internship experience or at least within the first 7 days that you are on-site.
Before pursuing an internship in the state of Maryland, please contact the Office of Academic and Career Services.
Once completed, you must schedule a contract approval appointment with our offices to finalize the process and receive final approval. If the contract is not completed and signed-off on by all parties, the internship does NOT qualify for academic credit.
