Steps for Student Internships
Step 1: Meet with your Student Advisor and the Internship Representative
You will want to meet with your Academic Advisor to complete your academic pathway planning guide, discuss and review holds and your internship course.
Step 2: Complete the online Internship Orientation in Canvas at 90% degree completion
After initial contact with the Internship Representative, you will be sent a link through your Titan email address about Orientation hosted in Canvas. When you are 90% of the way toward completing your degree, you will need to complete the orientation and pass the course with a 70% score or higher for the online internship application to become available.
Step 3: Complete a Student Internship Application
You must fill out an application to participate in an Internship for a course. Use our convenient online Internship Application, available upon completion of the required online orientation. A paper application will be available at any EFSC Career Center.
To be eligible for an Internship, you must have the Declared Degree/Major on Record and meet all program prerequisites and requirements. For more information on these requirements, view the Course Checklist for your program through the links in the box on this web page.
Step 4: Find Placement Sites
No matter what your area of academic interest, the Internship Representative can help you find a placement site that is right for you.
View our Internship Partner Site page, which lists placement sites throughout Brevard County. Your internship does not need to be at a current Internship Partner. If you find an Internship Partner to complete your internship simply contact the Internship Coordinator for additional requirements. Finding a site on your own is not required, but is acceptable. All internship locations must be verified by the Internship Representative.
Please note that although faculty has set minimum internship hour requirements, your Internship Partner Site may have their own requirements. Check with the Internship Representative or your site contact to verify your hours.
Step 5: Submit the Required Paperwork Prior to Starting the Internship
Upon completion of the online internship application, the Internship Coordinator will contact you directly with your next steps. Additional forms may be required for your internship.
Your Internship Partner Site may require you to complete additional forms, a Level 2 Background Check and/or Drug-Screening. The background check and/or drug screenings may be at a cost to you. Please contact the Internship Representative for more information on these costs.
Step 6: Intern & Reflect on your Experience
We recommend that you take time to record and reflect on your Internship experience while at your site.
Most Internship courses require an assignment (journal, essay, class presentation, etc.), and keeping track of your thoughts throughout the experience may help. Check with your instructor for details and required assignments.
Step 7: Return Post-Internship Required Paperwork
Return completed paperwork to the Career Center Internship Representative. Always remember to check with the Career Center Internship Representative and your instructor about requirements and due dates.
