Students - Internships

Basics

An internship is a way for you to earn college credit while working in an actual position that relates to your major, giving you a chance to gain experience and make connections in a professional setting. You register for the internship class but instead of going to a classroom, you go to your internship job site.

Our department is here to:

  • Determine whether you are academically ready for an internship
  • Help you register for internship credit
  • Give you access to internship postings from local employers
  • Advise and coach you throughout the process
  • Check out our calendar of events for scheduled info sessions.

Requirements

In order to register for an internship a student must have:

  • 12 credits completed (with grades) when you apply
  • 2.0 GPA (minimum)
  • Reading/Writing course completed (at least one)
  • Math course completed (based on your degree)
  • Program-specific requirements:
