HAPP Internship Program Agreement Form 2016

Steps to a successful internship

In order to secure your internship on a timely basis the following things are required:

  1. Make an internship advising appointment to discuss your internship placement interests and needs in the preceding spring or fall semester with the Internship Coordinator (Dr. Pinet-Peralta).
    • All students who plan to complete the internship must see the Internship Coordinator for their internship advising (which is separate from academic advising) in the preceding spring or fall semester.
  1. Complete an internship application online prior to your internship advising appointment, which is available through the HAPP Website. The Internship Coordinator will not see you without this form completed. Application due dates are included at the end of this document.
  2. Once your application is submitted (this is the only way we know who is doing an internship), you can then start applying to internships.
  3. Once you have been offered and have accepted an internship, ask your site preceptor to contact the Internship Coordinator by email (lpinet1@umbc.edu) to officially confirm the placement offer via a letter of intent.
  4. The Internship Coordinator will contact the site preceptor and the student intern and ask both to complete the HAPP Internship Program Agreement (HIPA), required to finalize the internship and issue the necessary permissions.
  5. Students will be given permission to register for HAPP 495 after the Internship Coordinator has received a HIPA, which must be sent directly from the preceptor to Dr. Pinet-Peralta at lpinet1@umbc.edu.
