Want to provide an internship opportunity for a current employee?

UIS students who wish to complete an internship at their current place of employment may do so, pending approval from his/her academic department.  In such situations, for a student to earn academic credit for an internship, the following guidelines are suggested:

  1. The student’s job or position relates to his/her academic major.
  2. The student will be working in a new position OR the student will be assigned new duties, projects, responsibilities, etc. that will provide a learning experience for the student throughout the course of the academic semester.
  3. The student has a work supervisor who is willing to supervise the work completed for the credit-bearing internship, participate in a site visit (in-person or via conference call) with a UIS faculty member, and fill out an evaluation of the student’s work at the end of the academic semester.

The student will complete a document for course approval and obtain the work supervisor’s signature. It is the student’s responsibility to communicate with his/her course instructor and to complete all internship requirements. For more information, please contact us at (217) 206-6640 or
