Next Steps

For 396/496 courses, students need to report the experience on Handshake. Once both the employer's and faculty's approval is received through Handshake, then a permit is issued and you will be contacted via email with permission to enroll.  It is advised to discuss learning objectives with the faculty member who is in charge of experiential learning. You can find the faculty coordinator for your specific class using the Schedule of Classes.

For CEP 300, students need to report the experience on Handshake. Once both the employer and faculty's approval is received through Handshake, then Career Services will register the student into CEP 300
