Candidates who hold teaching certificates meet with an advisor to develop a plan of study and apply immediately for a one year internship beginning in either the fall or spring semester.  Once candidates are accepted into the Internship program, they are required to sign a promissory note in which they agree to complete an internship which entitles them to 33 credits of tuition.
