While it is important to assist students in completing their academic requirements to ensure timely graduation, health and safety are paramount. 

The term “internship” is used broadly in these requirements to encompass the range of student experiences and opportunities outside of the classroom, including undergraduate research, whether for credit or not. Regardless of the nature of the internship, the University reminds all students to make sure they are taking appropriate precautions and are familiar with the health and safety guidelines in the locality they will be working. 

If the internship will be completed in-person at a third-party location, such as with an outside employer, then these should be continued only if applicable laws and government orders, including local ordinances, allow it. Please seek approval from the Office of the Provost ( before offering these courses. A standard Memorandum of Understanding between the University department and the third-party internship host must be in place for these internships.
