Before making any internship plans, we encourage you to:
review the information provided online about Clarion University's internship policies and procedures
determine if your internship is credit-bearing, paid or both.
contact your academic departmental internship coordinator to discussprogram requirements and application procedures prior to making plans for a credit-bearing internship.
