The student internship plan will include all dates and times that the student will work, as well as any holidays they have negotiated with the University and site agency. The total number of actual internship hours should be at least 600 hours. These hours will include training associated with the internship, but they can not include hours spent at home on related internship activities (e.g., reading).
PROFESSIONAL DISCLOSURE STATEMENT By the end of the first week of the internship, the intern is expected to provide the UofA Supervisor with an individualized Professional Disclosure Statement that will be used with each of the clients with whom the intern works. This disclosure statement can be developed with the assistance of the Internship Primary Site Supervisor.
TIME LOG The intern will keep a weekly time log that will be signed at the end of each week by the Internship site Supervisor. The Time Log will be submitted to the UofA supervisor at the completion of the internship. Students will keep a copy of this important document for their professional files.

Students will be required to submit a typed paragraph –long response to each of the chapters and send it via e-mail to Charlene Kampfe. Due dates are listed below.

Students receiving an average of 3 to 4.49 average will receive a "P" for the course. Students who receive less than a 3.0 average will fail the course and be expected to take the course again.

If for some reason, students are unable to continue with their site, due to circumstances that arise because they are not able to function as a counselor in that site, students will be dismissed from the internship and either receive a failing grade, a medical withdrawal or, on rare occasion, be given the opportunity to take an incomplete and start again in the following semester.
