You should meet with your internship supervisor and
come up with an activity that is not currently listed on your learning
objectives. Then you need to email the requested change to
the internship coordinator along with the learning objective that you
wish to replace. The internship coordinator will let you know if it is an approved change.
| Journals |
I have exceeded my 300 hours of working, do I need to continue to send journals?
do not need to continue to send journals, but you must notify the
internship coordinator when you are sending your last journal for the
I forgot to send you my journal from last week. Can I send it now that it is a week late?
Unfortunately you cannot receive
credit for last week's journal because it is so late. If you have not
heard from the internship coordinator by late Tuesday, you should be
sending her an email asking if she received it.
| Internship Evaluation |
When and how will the internship evaluation be sent? What should I do with it?
The internship evaluation will be emailed to you sometime during the second week of July. You should either print it out or email it to your supervisor. After
your supervisor has filled out the evaluation, he/she can either return
it to you to include with the rest of your internship materials or may
return it directly to the internship coordinator.
| Internship Hours |
It is the end of the internship and all my hours are due, but I have not yet received my final paycheck stub. What should I do?
You should write a note indicating how many hours your are owed and have your supervisor sign it. This should be included with the rest of your internship materials.
I am not being paid for my internship, how should I keep track of my hours?
You need to go to the internship website and get the unpaid internship form.
What if I need more hours after August 2nd? When does my supervisor need to send you a note about it?
You may count hours only up until the first Friday
following August 2nd. Since all your materials are due to the
internship coordinator by August 2nd,
your supervisor should write a note indicating how many hours you will
work between the time you mailed me your materials and the first Friday
after the 2nd. This note should be included with the rest of your
My paycheck stubs keep a running tally of how many hours I have worked. Do I have to submit all my paycheck stubs or just that last one?
If your paycheck stubs keep a running total of hours, then you only need to submit the last paycheck stub.
on my tasks for the day, I may be working with a different staff member
at the company. Should I have that particular employee sign as my
supervisor for that day on my unpaid hours sheet, or just one consistent
signature on every date?
It does not matter. You may choose whatever is most convenient for you and your employer.
| Submitting Assignments |
Can I turn in my internship materials to the internship coordinator’s office?
You may bring your internship materials to campus rather than mailing them if you wish. Materials should be turned in to the main HEV office in Wightman 205. The office is open M-F 8:00 – 4:00.
I was just wondering if my paper and portfolio
can all be combined into one large binder or if they should be turned
in as separate items? I was thinking about having separate sub-title
pages per project/section, but combining them all into my portfolio
binder in sheet protectors.
The paper should not be in the portfolio nor should it
be put into plastic sheet protectors. The reason is that if I want to
mark on a page, then I have to take each piece of paper out of the
plastic sleeve, mark it, and then put it back. The paper should be bound
in some way, either three-holed punched and put into a ringed binder or

Do I need to let the internship coordinator know that I am going on vacation?
Yes. You must notify the internship coordinator when you will be on vacation so that she is not expecting a journal from you.
