  1. How do I register for a free Missouri Intern Connect account?

    On the home page, click “Login/Register” in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. You will be required to select an account type, and should select "Organization." In order to ensure your school is not already registered, the system will request you enter your school name. Slowly type the name of your school in the text box, and a list will populate below. If you see your school in the dropdown list, that means there is an existing account. Click on your school’s name. Some of the registration fields will disappear because Missouri Intern Connect already has your school’s information on the site. A registered user from your school will be notified of your request and will review your information to confirm your account.

    If the system does not find your school registered with Missouri Intern Connect, simply complete the registration form. Be sure to select “University” as the organization type. Your registration will be sent to Missouri Intern Connect to review and approve. Once a staff member approves your account, you will be able to post internships, search for interns and assist your students.
