Learn about Support Administration at Cuyahoga DD


Cuyahoga DD has a limited capacity for student internships and graduate-level field placements. All placements are unpaid, under the direct supervision of Cuyahoga DD professionals, and are subject to the availability of supervisors, the assessed fit between the student’s educational needs and the experiences available, and the completion of necessary paperwork and processes prior to formal acceptance. (Potential student interns will need to complete and pass a criminal background check and drug test prior to acceptance.) Cuyahoga DD supports both traditional and non-traditional internships:

  • A traditional internship involves the student identifying learning goals and receiving some type of educational credit. There must be an agreement in place between Cuyahoga DD and the student’s college or university. (If one is not in place, we may be able to work with you/your college or university to create one.)
    • Opportunities for the Behavior and Health Services department are limited to an academic year timeframe with start dates in the fall. The deadline for submission of this form is February 15. Students will receive a response and/or a request for an interview by April 15.

  • A non-traditional internship usually involves the person seeking experience and/or knowledge about a particular field or topic to add to a resume. Non-traditional internships are usually not affiliated with a college or university.
