Gen St 350: Forms and Registration
To register for the General Studies 350 course, students need to independently secure an internship. The vast majority of internship positions can qualify for GEN ST 350, since the course relies more heavily on the completion of an academic project than the internship itself. Should you need assistance in locating an internship, please consult the Carlson Center’s public service internship resources or contact the UW Career Center for information concerning internships in the private sector.
The application for GEN ST 350 can be obtained in Mary Gates Hall 171 or below in the forms section of this page. Submit application forms to the Carlson Center in Mary Gates Hall 171. As long as there are no problems or omissions in the paperwork, the Carlson Center will process and complete the registration by the end of the week that the forms are turned in. Before submitting paperwork, students are encouraged to check over their application to ensure that everything is in order. This would include ensuring that the number of credits is appropriate for the number of hours at the internship site, signatures have been obtained from an on-site supervisor and a qualifying academic sponsor, and that the Learning Contract has been fully completed.
