Agency Externship Program
How Do Students Enroll in the Course?
Any student interested in participating in the Agency Internship Program must:
- Find an internship position. The student is responsible for finding an acceptable internship position. There are various ways to find positions including participating in Career Services fall and spring recruiting programs, checking the Symplicity Job Board, reviewing emails from Career Services, consulting with the Internship Director or a Career Services Advisor and reviewing job search websites and employer directories, many of which are available through the Career Services and Agency Internship offices.
- Complete an online application form. Applications are considered in the order in which they are received.
- Receive Application Approval. Once the student has submitted an application form, the Internship Director will review the proposed placement for program compliance. The review procedure involves calling or emailing the potential employer to confirm (i) a proper range of student responsibilities, (ii) adequate supervision, and (iii) a commitment to providing a final student evaluation. Until the Internship Director approves an application, the student is not eligible to enroll in the course.
- Enroll. Upon application approval, the Internship Director signs a Program Registration Permission Slip. Students should submit their signed permission slips to the USD Law Records Office where they enroll in the course. A student will not be allowed to enroll in the course without a signed permission slip. After enrolling, the registered student will receive an email containing the course syllabus that further describes program requirements and a course schedule. Students will also received access to online materials via the Blackboard website (registration required).
