Application Process / Apply

Please ensure you have read the information about finding a placement before submitting an application.

Regardless if you have secured your placement or are still seeking, students desiring an externship must submit an application to enroll by the following deadlines:

    August 1:  for Fall externship
    December 1:  for Spring externship
    May 1:  for Summer externship

Once you have secured a placement:

  1. Submit the online application form to enroll for approval by the Externship Director
  2. Register for the class via the Student Services course registration form
  3. Students are waitlisted until both the student and placement are approved
  4. Once student & placement are approved, you’ll receive a username & password to CORE-ELMS
  5. Download and sign the Memorandum of Understanding in CORE-ELMS, have your supervisor sign, and upload to CORE-ELMS.

Still ​seeking a ​placement:

If you are still applying for or waiting to hear back about a potential placement or an interview, you still must submit the application form by the deadline. Submitting the application form does not obligate you to the externship; you may withdraw your application by notifying the Extern Director that your plans have changed. 

Once you have secured a placement, ​notify the Extern Director for final approval and complete steps 2 - 5 listed above.

Applications submitted late will be accepted only on a case-by-case basis.
