Applying for Winter Term Internship Credit? Follow these steps…

Each Winter Term, many students participate in internships and apply for the opportunity to earn academic credit while having high-level exposure to valuable work. Below is a complete timeline that clearly outlines all of the necessary steps to obtain credit this January.

Contact Cheryl Whitney Lower at clower@middlebury.edu with any questions.

Starting now – early November, 2017: Secure your Internship

October 30-November 1, 2017: Register for the Winter Term Internship Course

  • If you are planning to complete an internship but have not yet been approved or secured, register for any Winter Term class as a temporary placeholder. Failure to register for a class or an internship during WT registration means you will not be eligible for credit.  
  • If your internship is approved before WT registration, register on Banner for your internship; CCI will send you follow up instructions.
  • Note: “Approved” means it has been approved by CCI and the Curriculum Committee

Before early November, 2017: Identify and secure an Academic Sponsor

  • Identify a Middlebury faculty member as your Academic Sponsor- this can be an academic advisor or another faculty member.
  • Discuss a plan that will help you make connections between your internship experience and your coursework at Middlebury
  • Identify at least three scholarly sources to list in your application for credit. You will also use this as an intellectual framework for your experience and as relevant content for your final academic work.

No later than mid-November, 2017: Send Supervisor and Academic Sponsor the necessary paperwork

DEADLINE: November 30, 2017: Forms required to complete your application:

January/February, 2017: Completing your internship

  • Submit final academic work to your academic sponsor.
  • Submit self-evaluation to the CCI.
  • Internship supervisor will also submit an evaluation.
