    *Let â€‹your Internship Site Supervisor know to look for an email from Handshake to approve your Experience request. The request must be approved within 5 business days. Handshake emails often go to junk/spam inboxes, so remind your Supervisor to check there. Contact the Career Development Center with any issues regarding Handshake approvals. 

Once your Internship Site Supervisor, Faculty Advisor, and Academic Advisor approve your Handshake Experience request, you will receive an email from your Academic Advisor instructing you to register for the course. It is your responsibility to register for the course and the corresponding number of credit hours. Refer to instructions for adding variable course credits.
