  4. International internships: all international internships must be submitted to the International Center. The Center and the Office of Academic Programs will collaborate on approval. 
  5. Out of State Internships: if the initial assessment indicates a necessary site visit to the out of state internship partner, then we would have to decline the internship. In this case, please submit your application early to leave ample time for evaluation.
  6. Home-Based/Virtual Internships:
    1. The University does not allow home-based internship
    2. Definitely do NOT allow students to work "on-site" at an individual's home.
    3. An individual's home is NOT considered to be a safe work environment.
