Students register internships to receive course credit or transcript notation, reflect on the experience and/or to meet a requirement of their employer or degree program.  For all courses through the Pomerantz Career Center students find their own internship before registering.  Students have course options through the Pomerantz Career Center, their college, or the academic department for their major.

Steps for Registering For a Pomerantz Career Center Internship Course

  1. Log into your Handshake account. 
    Please note: You must have an experience that has been confirmed with an employer prior to requesting to register for an internship course. 
      

  1. Click on "Career Center" at the top, then "Experiences" in the middle of the page and "Request an Experience" - complete the form including the supervisor's email address. F1 & J1 students must also request CPT approval from ISSS 

  2. Within one week of adding your internship information on Handshake, you will receive an email and a note in Handshake with instructions for adding the internship course on MyUI. If you do not add the internship course on MyUI, it will not appear on your transcript.  
      

Remember for all Internships: To receive the passing grade, you must complete the Midterm Evaluation. 

Questions? Call the Pomerantz Career Center at 335-1023 or email Jennifer-Noyce@uiowa.edu

If you would like to have your internship experience noted on your transcript for 0 credit hours, you must first register as a non-degree student with the Office of Admissions. You must also be set up to register for the semester - please do so by contacting the Academic Advising office at 319-353-5700. Once you have been admitted as a non-degree seeking student and have received a “registration number”, please follow the steps under the "Instructions for Registering" above. 

You will most likely want to choose one of these options in Handshake - F-1 & J-1 Zero Credit Hour Internship for CPT Requirement; F-1 & J-1 CCP:1201 Academic Internship for CPT Requirement; or the Field Experience for CPT Requirement . However, international students in the Leadership Certificate will enroll in the LS:3011 Leadership Certificate Capstone. 

More information here.

If your internship is abroad, you are required to meet with staff in the Office of Study Abroad (1-319-335-0353) to discuss safety, health, and cultural context.  You must complete the Office of Study Abroad's travel registry before you will be approved for a Pomerantz Career Center internship course.  You will use the Internships Abroad option in Handshake when requesting approval for registration.   

Some internships may be eligible for honors program credit. Discuss requirements with your Honors Program advisor.
