Please note: Our students will begin contacting agencies to request internship interviews on February 10, 2014. Students from various schools and programs may be contacting you for internship interviews before our February 10th start date. Our placement process is structured, and we make efforts to carefully place students based on the individual student and our knowledge of each agency. In order to provide your agency and the student the most valuable experience possible, we take time with the matching process and it is helpful to know ahead of time that agencies will reserve their decision making process until MSU Denver students have been able to connect and interview with their matched agencies. Please keep our timeline in mind when navigating the field placement (internship) process! THANK YOU!
