Internship Credit

TATM students can receive academic credit for a summer internship if

  • The summer internship is structured and closely related to their FTD or FTM major.
  • The student works a minimum of 150 hours during their summer internship.
  • The student is enrolled in the 3 credit Textiles Internship Class, T493, during the same summer as the internship. (Please note that this requires paying summer tuition.)
  • The student successfully completes the T493 course requirements.
  • The student has not previously taken T493.

T493 will be offered via distance education in 2020 Summer Session I – 10 weeks.
T493 will count towards 3 credits of a student’s FTD or FTM Electives in their degree audit.
Students can take T493 regardless if their internship is paid or not.

T493 Enrollment Process

1. Fill out the Internship Approval Form and submit it to the T493 Instructor.

  • The Internship Approval Form must be submitted by Friday, May 8, 2020 (Friday prior to the start of Summer I).
  • However, the form will need to be submitted at least 2 days prior to the end of the regular Summer I registration period, if you would like to avoid late registration fees.
  • If the internship is approved, you will be enrolled in T493.

2. After the T493 instructor emails you confirming that your Internship Approval Form has been accepted, please complete the Internship Agreement Form and submit it to the T493 Instructor.

  • The Internship Agreement Form must be submitted by Monday, May 11, 2020 (two days prior to the first day of Summer I).
  • If the Internship Agreement Form is not received by Monday, May 11, 2020, you will be dropped from T493.
