Agricultural internships effectively provide practical experience for students with non-agricultural backgrounds. While the reasons for internships are generally well-understood, few teachers are experienced in the overall administration of internship programs. Topics relating to record-keeping forms, evaluations, assignment of credit hours, assignment of grades, selection of internship stations, on-the-job visitations, and employer recognition are discussed in this paper. Guidelines presented should be useful for beginning programs or programs under review or revision.
