Externship Application Deadlines

Deadlines vary depending upon each placement office. The Office of Skills and Experiential Learning maintains deadlines to ensure the externship program is open for all students and administered in a fair manner. Students are encouraged to apply early.  

Various externships may have specific preferences. Students selected to extern in a federal government agencies should be aware that such agencies require an extensive background check. Once selected for the externship, students must be responsive to the time deadlines for a background check. Failure to fulfill that commitment will disqualify students from participation in the Field Placement Office. These government agencies also require students to be a U.S. citizen to apply.

Academic credit is never extended retroactively for fieldwork already performed.
