Academics >> Work-Based Learning >> For Students >> Application Process

Application Process
STEP 1: Complete the Work-Based Learning Application early prior to the semester you plan to begin:
  • Spring semester for fall semester
  • Fall semester for spring semester
NOTE: Some departments may have earlier application deadlines. Contact the Work-Based Learning Liaison if you cannot meet deadlines because of extenuating circumstances.
STEP 2: Meet with your faculty advisor to discuss participation in Work-Based Learning. If you are eligible and approved to participate, your advisor will complete the Faculty Approval Worksheet (Page 2 of the application) and forward it to the Work-Based Learning Liaison. If your faculty advisor is not available, contact the WBL Liaison -  lynn_jennings@albemarle.edu
STEP 3: Prepare a resume and start your job search! While we cannot guarantee employment to any student seeking a work-based learning experience, the college has partnerships with organizations interested in nonpaid interns. There is also a Work-Based Learning jobs site offering resources and guidance for your job search.

International students: U.S. Law requires employers to verify the legal work eligibility of all new employees within three days of employment. If you are here on any Visa other than a work Visa, you should contact Martha Johnson, PDSO to obtain permission before you begin the application process - (252) 473-2264 x 7012, martha_johnson@albemarle.edu.  Her office is on the Dare Campus in the Admin Building room 104.
STEP 4: Notify us of your work-based learning arrangement. Once you have secured employment, contact your faculty advisor or Work-Based Learning Liaison. They will guide you in finalizing the pre-registration paperwork and obtaining signatures from your site supervisor.
Your current employer may, in some cases, serve as a Work-Based Learning work site. You will need to show that you are learning new skills and duties for the Work-Based Learning class.
STEP 5: Register and pay. When your work site has been determined and your pre-registration paperwork finalized (submitted and approved), you will be allowed to register and pay for the Work-Based Learning class. Visit Tuition and Fees for information on payment.
