One last note from the Internship Director…
COM 399 summer interns will be enrolled in the summer 8-week session; however, you may begin and end your internship whenever you wish as long as
you have fulfilled all your requirements by the day before the session ends in August. All summer interns will receive an email from after Spring finals.
It will contain reminder information about your assignments and other obligations and will be sent to your uky.edu account. It is your responsibility to
contact me if you have not received correspondence from me by the start of Summer II session.
