WORK EXPERIENCE


Work Experience is the academic support component to an internship which may or may not be directly related to an occupational goal. While students learn new skills and gain real-world experiences they are able to be supported by faculty. Students interested in work experience must  have an internship first and complete some requirements prior to receiving an ADD code to enroll in work experience.

NOTE: The Work Experience process has changed from paper to online forms. Students may begin the online Work Experience Application process for Spring 2019, but the Work Experience Coordinator will not approve placements or provide ADD codes until after January 22, 2019.
