Internship Begin and End Dates

Important Note: These dates refer to a twelve-week internship. Your internship must be completed between the first and last day of classes of the semester you are enrolled. Internships that go beyond the last day of the semester may result in a deferred grade for the internship which might disrupt your graduation plan.
