You will both have to create a form of evaluation, or your respective department might already have internship evaluation requirements. Second, contact the Career Center or Registrar’s Office to gain the necessary forms. Third, after turning in all of your forms, make sure to check with the Registrar’s Office in case there are other forms, requirements, etc. that you must complete. For more information, please look at Wittenberg’s Career Center homepage.
