Application & Registration Procedures (Overview)
  1. Students are required to apply to the program by completing the Academic Internship Program (AIP) application.

  2. Students submit a completed Academic Internship Program application and a current resume to the Career and Professional Development Center.

  3. The Career and Professional Development Center will forward the student's application and hard copy resume to the appropriate Academic Department Head or faculty designate for approval. After review, the Department Head will return the student application materials to the Career and Professional Development Center.

  4. Students who are conditionally approved for the AIP will receive written notification from the Academic Department. A copy of the notice is sent to the Career and Professional Development Center and the Faculty Advisor. This notice will include information on how to register online with the Career and Professional Development Center and how to obtain employer site approval.

  5. Students who are not approved will receive written notification from the Academic Department, stating the reasons for ineligibility and any conditions that the student might pursue for future consideration. A copy of the notice is sent to the Career and Professional Development Center and the Faculty Advisor.

  6. Students who choose to search and apply for internships posted by the Career and Professional Development Center need to register online with MonsterTRAK at www.monstertrak.com and upload a resume into the system. Your freedom card number is your initial password. The majority of internships received by the Career and Professional Development Center are posted in the RMU Jobs section of MonsterTRAK. Students who apply for these positions may be contacted directly by the employer for an interview at the company/organization site. Some employers opt to schedule an on-campus recruiting visit to interview intern candidates. These internships are posted as preselects in the RMU InterviewTRAK portion of MonsterTRAK. Students who apply for preselect positions will be contacted by e-mail if selected to interview on campus. Students are expected to follow-up with all employers who contact them.

  7. Students who have found an internship site independently are not required to register online. Students are required to have the employer submit a completed Employer Information Form to the Career and Professional Development Center and have the employer site approved by the Academic Department.

  8. Acceptance into the Academic Internship Program does not guarantee placement with an organization. Students are encouraged to actively conduct an internship search with the assistance of the Career and Professional Development Center and Academic Departments. Every effort is made by the Career and Professional Development Center to seek opportunities for students, both paid and unpaid.

  9. Once students are selected for and accept an internship, they should notify the Career and Professional Development Center who will work with the students and Academic Departments for registration of credits.

  10. The Academic Department Head or designate will submit the prerequisite waiver for the student.

  11. Once the student receives notification by e-mail that the prerequisite waiver has been granted, he/she should take a copy of the e-mail to the Student Support Center to register for the internship credits, make any adjustments to his/her schedule, and make financial arrangements.

  12. Students are required to complete, sign, and return to the Faculty Advisor the Mutual Letter of Agreement, which will be provided by their academic department.
