Internship Information & Application

Spring 2017


You must have completed ALL of your program requirements on your program of study. This includes ALL methods courses. College policy does not permit taking a course with internship.

  • You must have satisfactorily completed Field Experience I and II.
  • You must have a grade point average of 2.5 or better.
  • You must have successfully completed all critical tasks prior to internship.
  • All incompletes must be removed prior to internship.

You should intern when your personal schedule will allow you to commit your full energies to this full time commitment.

Submission of application or placement does not guarantee that permission to register for internship will be granted.

Application Procedure

  1. Make an appointment to see your academic advisor in the College of Education and Human Services’ Office of Academic Advising. All deficiencies must be resolved prior to the end of the term preceding internship. Deficiencies not resolved prior to internship may result in delaying internship.
  2. Complete the application form
    • While on campus, you may access the application on the computers in the Educational Technology Center. See the center assistant for instructions. You should also check on center hours of operation and dates when the center may be closed, such as during holidays. The application will take some time to prepare and since other students will be using the center as well, it would not be wise to wait until the last minute to begin.
  3. Complete a CPR/First Aid Certification course. You may take the course offered by the American Red Cross (358-8091), UNF’s Health Promotion (620-1570) or a course from another certified provider. The course must include CPR as well as First Aid. Submit a copy of your cards back and front to the Office of Educational Field Experiences. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE THE COURSE COMPLETED TO SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION. However, documentation of CPR/First Aid must be submitted no later than November 1, 2016.  Delaying submission of the documentation will delay permission to register for internship.
  4. Obtain two passport style photos (snapshots not acceptable). These are available from various places such as Walgreens, CVS, Mail Boxes, etc. Remember to appear professional in these photos.
  5. Internship materials fee of $35 will be assessed to your tuition invoice.

Submitting the Application

Deliver the original application and one copy of the application form (Parts 1 – 7) to the Office of Educational Field Experiences, Building 57 (Petway Hall), Room 1304, no later than 5:00p.m., Friday September 16, 2016. APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER THE DEADLINE. Incomplete, inaccurate, or poorly done applications will be returned. This will result in delaying your placement.

All students must be fingerprinted and cleared by the district in which they will intern. You will not be permitted to register for internship until you are fingerprinted and cleared. You will be notified by the Office of Educational Field Experiences if you need to be fingerprinted for a particular county.
