College of Education Final Internship Application

You must fill out and submit an application to complete your final internship with the College of Education.  These applications are reviewed by local counties who in turn make the school placements for final interns.  You must apply for your final internship two semesters prior (this means January for a fall placement and June for a spring placement).

Professionalism Counts!

It is important to remember that these field experiences are your first entry into the teaching profession.  You will be seen as a teacher, not a student, in the eyes of the children, teachers, principals, and districts where you work.  Remember that everyone in the district in which you are placed is a prospective employer.  The school and the students are excited to work with you and expectations are high so professionalism is crucial.


Changes-Notify the College of Education immediately!

Once you submit your registration permit request or your final internship application, it is very important that you communicate immediately any changes in your name, address, phone or your placement preferences, or if you can no longer participate in your field experience. Please submit a Change Form as soon as any relevant data or your ability to intern changes.  Failure to provide timely information may result in a placement outside of your preferences or you may miss important directions and/or placement information.

Remember that a great deal of time and resources go into making placements.  Schools, teachers and students are excitedly awaiting you, so it is important to provide ample notice if you cannot participate.  The University expects that only medical or other extenuating circumstances will preclude a student from starting or completing a field experience once a permit/application has been made.


USF Email

Plan to use or check your USF email frequently throughout the Internship/Practicum process (from application/permit request through completion of the experience).  The USFSM College of Education will ONLY send communications to your university email.  It is your responsibility to check it regularly or forward it to a preferred email account.
