Updates on Internships
Now that we’re past the KIN paperwork deadline for internships, if you have recently secured (or subsequently secure) an internship opportunity it is still possible to enroll this semester.
The KIN deadline is set in a way that helps insure you meet the SJSU add deadline. So, if turned in late of course it can still be processed but I cannot guarantee that all will be done by the SJSU add deadline – 9/10. If after the SJSU deadline, you can still enroll but would need a late enrollment petition.
As long as you and your site supervisor concur there is enough time to complete the hours you need, then please do go ahead and turn in paperwork, even though late.
The internship page on the KIN website contains the information you need regarding, the internship specifications form, link to online enrollment form, sample syllabus, and general information:
Complete the internship/fieldwork specifications form in consultation with your site supervisor then scan the form for subsequent upload when you complete the KIN enrollment form. The link to the online KIN enrollment form is on the KIN internships page.
Also, ask the director/manager/owner of the site you will be interning at to establish a university-organization agreement (UOA) between their agency/business/school and SJSU if we do not already have a UOA with them. Look here first to see if a UOA already exists between the site you want to intern at and SJSU:
The link for an organization to arrange for the UOA is:
Dr. Shifflett will review information and specifications form submitted with the KIN online enrollment form and assuming all information is complete and correct Dr. Shifflett will email you information needed to add if before 9/10. After 9/10, Dr. Shifflett will work with you to complete the late enrollment petition which you then submit to the registrar.
If you have questions, please follow up by email with: Dr. Shifflett, Internship Manager, SJSU Kinesiology Dept.
