The Collaborative Intern Program 

Is a joint project between the Department of Special Education at San Jose State University and local school districts, non-public schools and County Offices of Education. It is designed to give students the opportunity to teach and gain hands-on experience while pursuing a credential at SJSU.

      • Please visit the Credentials Office and navigate to the appropriate checklist in order to obtain your intern credential.
      • Your Intern Agreement Form is the only item on the checklist that is picked up from the Special Education Office.
