Internship Documentation

If you need documentation from Princeton University to secure your summer internship, there are a variety of resources available. 

The Center for Career Development is available to support all students throughout their search process. You can schedule an appointment with a career adviser to discuss your individual circumstances and to help you plan your summer. Advisers are available during academic breaks and the summer for appointments. 

Documents prospective employers may ask for 

Proof of Enrollment and/or Degree

The Office of the Registrar can verify Princeton students’ enrollment and degree statuses. Students may request Proof of Enrollment via TigerHub. 

Proof of Good Standing

Students who need proof of good standing may contact either:

  • Their residential college dean (if juniors & seniors)
  • Residential college assistant dean (if first-years or sophomores).

Internship Agreements

Domestic Internship Agreements

Students can consult with the Senior Associate Director for Internship Programs Jessica Matzko, at the Center for Career Development regarding domestic internships that are requesting university agreements. We must consult with University counsel before signing any agreement, so plan to allow at least two weeks between your initial meeting with us and the deadline for signing the agreement. Note that the University is not able to sign all agreements. 

International Internship Agreements

Students can consult with the Senior Associate Dean, Dr. Rebecca Graves-Bayazitoglu, at the Office of International Programs (OIP) regarding international internships that are requesting university agreements. OIP may consult with University counsel before signing an agreement, so plan to allow at least a week between your initial meeting with them and the deadline for signing the agreement. Note that the University is  not able to sign all agreements. 

Curricular Practical Training (CPT) Documentation

If students are approved for a Curricular Practical Training (CPT) work authorization, failure to submit the required IMC documentation by the deadline may constitute a violation of status. 

International students who are in violation of their status will not be permitted to continue their studies past the University’s drop/add deadline, and will be required to take a leave of absence. Contact the Davis International Center for more information about CPT regulations and status.

Internship Milestone Credit

The Internship Milestone Credit provides an opportunity for students in participating departments to receive academic credit for certain summer internship experiences on their transcript. Students must apply if their employer requires academic credit as a condition of an internship, or if they are an international student who wishes to apply for Curricular Practical Training.
