Internship Requirements for Traditional Undergraduate Students
- An internship should be a realistic, practical and planned work and learning experience. Through team effort, the business receives quality student work while the intern experiences career-type work and develops job skills, good work habits and interpersonal skills.
- Employers must provide a job description for the internship. The intern creates learning objectives in consultation with a faculty member and a site supervisor based on the job description.
- Employers should provide opportunities that challenge the intern’s skills and knowledge and use these objectives to evaluate the intern's learning and work performance.
- Internships may be full or part-time, paid or voluntary based on the U.S. Department of Labor guidelines for internships.
- By the time students begin an internship period they must be of junior or senior status and acceptable academic standing (2.0 accumulative GPA or higher) with a 2.5 GPA in their major. The intern also must have completed a minimum of 9 credits in their major.
- Internships can be taken for up to 6 credits per internship per semester, and up to 12 credits per semester. Internships may be taken with permission of the Division Chair and Head of Career Services on a per case basis. A maximum of 12 internship credit are allowed toward graduation requirements.
- One credit hour will be awarded for a minimum of 40 clock hours worked at the internship site.
- No more than 9 credit hours can be applied toward meeting the academic major requirements, and no more than 6 credit hours can be counted in meeting minor requirements.
