Registering for an Internship at MICA

An internship is just like any other course, in that you must be officially registered before you begin. This registration process is facilitated by Career Development.  In order to receive academic credit for an internship, students are responsible for attending an Internship Orientation and completing a Learning Contract before the start of the internship.  Additionally, the Learning Contract must be fully approved by all parties BEFORE a student can be registered for an internship.  Late contracts will not be accepted, so make sure to plan this out in advance!

It's easy to receive studio credit for your internship experience. The key is to plan ahead and follow these simple rules to register your internship with Career Development before you begin working:

Attend an Internship Orientation

This orientation will walk you through how to register an internship through, and the requirements necessary to receive credit for your experience. You must attend this orientation and have your internship approved before you can begin working at your internship site. Orientations during the Spring 2014 semester will be held every week on Fridays at 4:00 PM in the Career Development Office (Gateway 200).

Complete the Learning Contract through

The Learning Contract outlines the terms of your internship, and is the agreement between you, MICA, and the internship site.  You will complete and submit your Learning Contract through, which will begin the electronic approval process. The Learning Contract must be approved by you, your Internship Sponsor, your Department Chairperson* and the Career Development office.  You may not begin working until you receive confirmation from the Career Development office that your internship has been approved by all parties.

*If you are an International Student - your CPT paperwork must be completed, and the Learning Contract must also be approved by the International Student Advisor.  See the Employment for F-1 International Students page for further details.
