The internship should provide a new learning experience for the student intern. Consultation with the faculty instructor to secure approval is required before the internship begins. A permit number to register for the course will be granted after the objective of the internship is confirmed by the employer and approved by the faculty instructor. For 3 hours of Academic Credit, an internship will require completion of the academic requirements as specified in the ISM 3949 and/or the ISM 4949 course syllabi.
