What is the standard notice period for a school internship?

If you're looking to start an internship in a school, this article will tell you everything you need to know about the standard notice period.

There is no definitive answer to this question as it can vary depending on the school, program, and state. However, most internships have a notice period of 2-4 weeks.

Also, it is generally expected that interns will give their host organization as much notice as possible if they need to end their internship early.

Should a student need to quit an internship ahead of their last employment day, the school will usually step in to speak to the company to negotiate for a shorter notice period (but the student can still speak to the company too, if he or she wants to).
