Sick Days During College Internship

As a college intern on assignment, you are on the clock. That means that someone (maybe just you) must keep a record of your hours. So, what happens when you're sick?

1 - Employees at a site are likely to have an allotment of "sick days" that they can use without losing pay. As an intern, you don't!

2 - If you miss an assigned day due to illness, you will probably have to make up the hours in order to claim that you have accomplished the internship.

3 - If you miss more than a couple of hours during the semester, you should alert your campus professor. Absences from the internship can be problematic when it's time to receive credit on your transcript!
