IE3 internships are open to all OSU students who have at least junior status (having completed at least 90 credits) at the beginning of the internship period. You are also expected to maintain good standing at OSU both academically and financially. If you are on academic probation or have a hold with the Business Affairs Office, your application will not be processed.

As an IE3 intern, you are not only a representative of OSU, but also the IE3 program and the United States, and you are expected to show your full commitment to the internship according to the Participation Agreement Form (example) you sign.

All internship positions are full-time and last at least 10 weeks (one term) or more, and the beginning and ending dates may be arranged upon discussion with your Regional Director.

After completion of your internship abroad, you need to turn in following documents in order to receive your internship credits:

  • Final report
  • Self-evaluation
  • Employer evaluation
  • Any assignments discussed and arranged with your professor (if you are earning departmental credits)

Final report guidelines and evaluations forms are available at the IE3 website.
