Are You Interested in Enrolling in an Internship Course?
If you are an international student studying on an F1 student visa, please make sure to review Info for F1 International Students and obtain your eligibility letter from the International Education Center before proceeding to Step 2.
If you are not an international student, please go to Step 2.
Watch this Orientation Video to see if you qualify for the internship program and also how to enroll.
Processing your Internship Application Form and providing you an add code takes time. We recommend that you submit a complete Internship Eligibility Application Form at the beginning of the Internship Program enrollment period (see Internship Enrollment Dates below), therefore allowing you the opportunity to potentially start counting your internship hours the first week of your course term. Remember there are fewer weeks to complete the same required number of hours during the winter or summer sessions than the fall or spring semesters and internship hours do not count until you are enrolled in the internship class and the term (session/semester) has begun.
Once you have determined you meet the Internship Program eligibility requirements and that you are able to complete the required number of hours for the Internship course you would like to enroll in, please submit the Internship Eligibility Form.
- Internship Application Form(opens in new window) (login required)
Please note that you will be required to log in with your SMC email account/username (not your ID number) and password. Complete and submit the form. Forms time-out after 45 minutes.
If you cannot complete it, and the form has been enabled to save your progress, click the “Save Progress” button at the bottom of the page. You can return to it later by signing in at www.smc.edu/myforms. The "MyForms" portal shows forms you have submitted and those you have in progress.
- Click on “Pending/Draft Forms”.
- Identify the form you would like to resume and then click on the “Complete Form” button on the right side of the screen.
- To review forms you have submitted in the past, click on “Forms History.” Then click on the icon for PDF or for the HTML view.
- Once you have completed the missing questions/items, click the “Submit” button.
- Once submitted, you will be prompted to view and download a PDF version of the submitted form. You can always see it, too, by login in at the MyForms portal.
After submitting your Internship Application, it may take up to 5 business days for the Career Services Center to review your form and email you the next steps. Messages are sent to your SMC email address (accessible via Corsair Connect and not through Canvas). Again, consider the Internship Application Form processing time and how many weeks you have to complete the course when determining if you should enroll in the Internship Program. There are fewer weeks to complete the same required number of hours during the winter or summer sessions versus the fall or spring semesters.
Once your application has been reviewed by the Career Services and we have reached out to you. It can take an additional 3 to 5 business days to complete the remaining part of the application and issue you an add code. Please check the Internship Program Enrollment Deadlines for more information on when add codes are available per term. It is important that you plan accordingly, considering this processing time.
