At Randolph College those students who wish to receive academic credit for their internship are required to fill out a Credit-Bearing Internship Form. Part of this process involves the student communicating with you (their internship employer) about specific duties and responsibilities. The student will also ask the person at your company / organzation who will be their direct supervisor to sign off on the contract. If you have any questions or concerns about the Contract, do not hesitate to contact Maryam Brown, Assistant Director / Internship Coordinator.
If the student interning with you is not a U.S. Citizen, it is critical that you issue a formal offer letter to the student on company letterhead. An email will not suffice, but you may email the signed offer letter to the student as an attachement. The essential information that the letter must include is: Student's name, exact start date of internship, approximate number of hours, basic responsibilities / tasks. We have provided templates for the offer letter here. Although an offer letter is not required in the case of U.S. Citizen students, we still recommend it so that the student may gain experience with process of receiving a formal offer of employment.
If your Randolph College intern is not a U.S. Citizen, it is imperative that a) the student will obtain academic credit for the internship by completing the Credit-Bearing Internship Contract discussed above and b) you will need to issue the student a formal offer letter, described above. The Internship Coordinator may contact you to ensure that the internship relates directly to the student's major course of study at Randolph, in accordance with U.S. Dept of Labor specifications. For more information on Curricular Practical Training (CPT), please contact Maryam Brown, Assistant Director / Internship Coordinator via email or phone (434) 485-8069.
Each internship has a unique team of faculty and professionals supporting their experience. The intern can provide you with the name and contact information of his/her Faculty Sponsor, or you can contact the Career Development and Experiential Learning Center for that information at (434) 947-8116.
