Internship Forms & Resources
Many programs include an on-site or face-to-face requirement as an essential element of a course or program. As appropriate, precautions will be made to allow for social distancing, reduced population density within workspaces, provision of personal protective equipment, and other efforts to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19. Where the on-site or face-to-face field experience is essential to the course or program, the expectation is that students will report to their placement.
Undergraduate students with questions regarding their field experiences should first reach out to their internship coordinator and graduate students should contact their program director.
Students seeking accommodation due to a medical condition or disability should engage in the disability accommodation process through the Student Accessibility Resource Center. Additional information can be found on their webpage: https://students.georgiasouthern.edu/sarc/. On-site or face-to-face experiences cannot generally be substituted for remote experiences as long as placement sites remain open and available to students. However, other accommodations may be available to assist students in successfully completing their field experiences.
Student employees (including teaching assistants, lab assistants, and graduate assistants) seeking an accommodation related to their employment should engage in the disability accommodation process through Human Resources. To request an employment accommodation, student employees should complete the following form and submit it to Human Resources: https://jobs.georgiasouthern.edu/wp-content/uploads/ADA-Accommodation-Request-Form-1.docx
The policies, processes, and forms referenced above are subject to change as needed in response to USG and public health guidance.
