An internship is a supervised experience where the student is able to gain professional knowledge and training in an occupation, either working directly in the occupation or as an apprentice to an employee of the occupation. Students involved in internships, or "interns," are not always working in a paid position.

The major internship course "470" is up to three credit hours. Additional non-major internships will be registered as "473." Students may be interested in participating in an internship for reasons relating to their degree programs or majors. Some degree programs require an internship, while others recommend participation in an internship. Internships are graded on a Pass/No Pass basis. Non-degree and Visiting students are not permitted to take Internship Study courses.

Students interested in an internship must satisfy the following conditions:

  • Have declared his/her degree program or major.
  • Have earned the required number of credit hours as defined by the college.
  • Be enrolled in a "470" (Internship) course while participating in the internship. Students must register for the 470 designation that is consistent with his/her degree program or major.
  • Have permission from the faculty member who will serve as the internship supervisor to register for a 470 course.
  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.0.
