Construction management internship documents

The following documents are utilized to facilitate registration for the mandatory undergraduate, and non-mandatory graduate, internships related to the construction management programs at Arizona State University.  If you are in construction engineering, please use the CNE course page.

The CON 296 and CON 484 Internships are degree requirements for undergraduate students in construction management & technology.  Timing of the internship is structured for summer session (see your Major Map in MyASU).  Course registration is required as well as course payment.  The internship experience (320 work-hours) for each internship must be in the semester in which you are registered.  Students pursuing an unpaid internship, outside of ASU, will need to check to see if there is an Unpaid Student Placement Agreement (SPA) is on file.  If not, an SPA will be needed in addition to the DocuSign submission.

SSEBE’s Renege Policy

Renege – (verb) To go back on a promise, undertaking, or contract.  Students should never accept a job with the intention of turning it down if “something better” comes along. Not only is it inconsiderate and unprofessional, but it also reflects poorly on Arizona State University and might negatively impact future ASU student opportunities with that employer. Also, employers communicate with each other and you will likely damage your reputation.

After you have given your decision careful consideration and accepted an offer, stop looking. Inform other employers who have extended offers that you have accepted another position. Don’t accept additional interviews or job solicitations. Please refer to NACE’s Playing Fair…Your Rights and Responsibilities as a Job Seeker to become familiar with Principles for Professional Practice.

Students who renege on a job offer will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Reneging is grounds for exclusion from CPT and requests for switching employers will not be considered or processed.

Academic Integrity Policy

Any student who has a sanctioned academic integrity violation is NOT eligible for counting the internship experience in their iPOS.  Also, students found to be misrepresenting circumstances regarding employment or knowingly misleading faculty and staff regarding employment will have not have their CPT paperwork processed.
