Students may request accommodations for an internship while attending SU. An internship accommodation may more closely resemble a job accommodation rather than an academic accommodation. Internship accommodations require advance planning and often involve a significant amount of interaction between the academic program, DRC and the student. If you will be participating in an internship experience, plan to discuss whether accommodations will be needed with the DRC as early as possible.
