Receiving a Grade

Interns who do not submit the required documents on or before the deadline will receive a Failing grade.

Internship vs. Work Term

Definition of an Internship: Each time you start a job with a new employer, you are starting a new internship (most students complete an internship lasting 4-16 months, although it may be possible for students to participate in internships of shorter duration with different employers). All steps above in green must be completed during every internship position you have with a different employer.

Definition of a Work Term: Each time an academic term (Fall, Winter or Summer) starts, you are starting a new work term (beginning in September, January or May). A student may complete one or more work term(s) with the same employer (e.g. 12 months with one employer would be 3 work terms) or with different employers (e.g. 4 months with one employer and 8 months with a different employer would still be considered 3 work terms). All steps above in blue must be completed for every academic term you are on internship.
