Print your auto-populated Internship Site Approval Form and have it signed by your Internship Site Supervisor. Then you will either scan or take a photo of your Internship Site Approval Form and upload it into your online application. 

+ - Faculty Internship Advisor Approves or Declines Application

Once you have completed the 4-Step Internship Application, your Faculty Internship Advisor will receive an email notification to review your internship application for approval.

+ - Chapman Internship Coordinator Approves or Declines Application

Once your Faculty Internship Advisor has approved your internship application, Chapman's Career and Professional Development internship coordinator will review your application. Once it is approved, you will receive an automatic email, and it will take up to 5 business days for the Office of the Registrar to officially register you in your internship course. Please check My Chapman to verify whether you have been registered in your course within that timeframe.

+ - Start Interning!

Now that you are approved for academic credit, it is your time to shine! Have a wonderful time at your internship, and should you have any questions about internship experience expectations, reach out to Career and Professional Development.

+ - Timesheet

Throughout the course of your internship, you will keep track of your hours on the Internship Timesheet. At the end of the semester, your Internship Site Supervisor will sign the timesheet, and you will scan and upload it to your internship application in the Internship Application Portal.

+ - Site Supervisor Completes your Performance Evaluation

A few weeks before the semester ends, your Internship Site Supervisor will receive an email from Chapman with a link to an online performance evaluation, which they will need to complete in order for you to receive a grade for your internship course.

This link is sent to the email address you have provided in your internship application, so please be sure to let Chapman's Internship Coordinator know of any changes to your Internship Site Supervisor's contact information.

+ - Complete the Exit Survey

As the semester comes to an end, you will receive an email from the Chapman Career and Professional Development with a link to an exit survey regarding your experience at your internship. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and will help us continue to improve upon the internship process.

+ - Faculty Internship Advisor Grades you

In addition to completing all of the above steps, you will also need to turn in the assignment(s) that you and your Faculty Internship Advisor previously agreed upon at the start of your internship (i.e. daily journal, presentation, essay, etc.) by their determined due date(s) in order to be eligible to receive an academic grade from your Faculty Internship Advisor.
