Once you have secured your internship, you must apply for credit. Find all the information you’ll need (including a timeline and checklist and FAQs) at go/WTinternships.
If you are planning to do an internship but haven’t had it approved by CCI and the Curriculum Committee before Winter Term registration, register for a placeholder class.
Last deadline to submit your application for credit is December 1, but CCI recommends that you have all of your plans in place and apply by mid-November as there are many steps involved.
For help, make an appointment through Handshake with the advisor that matches the career path interest of your internship or make an appointment with Cheryl Whitney Lower for general internship advising.

Urban Teachers – A bit about them: They are a four-year teacher preparation and certification program that transforms those interested to teach into truly effective, culturally competent career teachers in urban schools in Baltimore, DC, and Dallas/Fort Worth. Their program includes: 1) A one-year co-teaching residency with stipend and benefits, 2) A two-year master’s degree in education from Johns Hopkins, 3) A guaranteed three-year teaching job with full-time salary and benefits, and 4) Three years and 85 hours of 1-on-1 coaching, as well as teaching certification by the end of year three. As a result, those who complete the Urban Teachers program are among the most expert and results-oriented educators in the nation.
In partnership with the SGA, the CCI has developed a “Life Beyond Middlebury” series that aims to equip students with the tools needed to develop strong personal finance skills. Check out our upcoming events!
