Internship Program Guidelines

An Internship may be a paid or unpaid experience and a student may earn from zero to six academic credit hours (depending on the number of hours worked per week). It is necessary for the internship to be registered through Career Development Center in order for it to appear on the student’s transcript.

To be eligible for academic credit, internships must meet the following requirements:

  • Minimum 14 weeks in length – dates do not have to coincide with the semester dates
  • Minimum of 8 work hours per week
  • Credit must be on-going and cannot be retroactive
  • Internship credit hours are subject to current tuition rates
  • Consult with an advisor to determine what degree requirements internship credit will fulfill
