This application will be reviewed by the appropriate internship faculty supervisor, who will contact you to let you know the internship is approved and you are accepted into the course. MARA students will automatically be registered for the 3-credit MARA 294 course. INFO 294 students must self-register through MySJSU. See the class schedules for the correct section number and the 5 digit class number. Please be aware there are separate sections of the INFO 294 internship class depending on number of units, whether you are regular or special session, and for each internship supervisor (for archival/records or non–archival internships). Please make sure to register for the appropriate section to avoid the add/drop process and insure you get your units for your internship.
