Ask your academic advisor which course is right for you—some departments offer internship credit and you should fulfill your department’s option first.

If your application is rejected, you will receive an e-mail from Handshake that says “Experience Approval Halted.” The e-mail will include any additional information the course instructor or internship site supervisor included in their rejection. If you’d like to resubmit your application with suggested changes from the course instructor or internship supervisor, contact us at or (812)-856-4278 and we can restart your approval process.

Once your application has been approved, you will recieve an email with instructions on how to register and enroll in the course. If you have questions about this process, feel free to contact us.

The length of time it takes for your application to be approved is dependent upon your supervisor’s response time. We recommend you tell your supervisor to look for an email from Handshake.
