Program Deliverables & Fees

Note: Program deliverables and fees only apply to students who receive an internship offer. There are no academic penalties or fees for students who do not receive an offer.

Program Deliverables

After you receive a verified internship offer, you will be enrolled in SS 3994, a 1.0 credit that is graded on a PAS/FAI basis.

To earn your credit, you will complete the following deliverables:

  • Internship Agreement – Sign an agreement to confirm understanding of program policies before the start of your internship.
  • Mid-point Check-In Call – To be completed approximately half-way through your work term with the Experiential Learning Coordinator.
  • Employer Evaluation - To be completed just prior to completion of the work term.
  • Final Assignment – Complete a technical report, video report or blog-style reflection; complete a brief self-assessment form.
  • Presentation - Share a 5 minute summary of your experience with Western students, faculty and/or staff.

A course outline will be provided upon enrollment. See 2022-23 Course Outline as a reference.

Program Fee

As of May 2023, the internship fee for hired students is $500 per work term. This fee will be applied to your record upon course enrollment, and is payable through Student Center.

While on internship, students do not pay tuition fees.

Western University will invoice students the Internship Course Fee and post it to your student account as follows: 

  • 8 month work term $1,000 ($500 in May, and August)
  • 9-12 month work term $1,500 ($500 in May, August, and January)
  • 13-16 month work term $2,000 ($500 in May, August, January, and May of the following year)

Payment of fees is the sole responsibility of the student, not the employer.
