How many credits can I earn for an internship?

College credit varies depending upon the experience. In general, a three-credit course over a fifteen-week semester typically involves a minimum 8-10 hours of employment per week. In some cases, you may earn up to 5 credits.

What do I do if I the internship doesn't work out because it was not a good fit or something comes up in my life?

If complications arise, consult with your faculty advisor and keep the Internship Program Coordinator informed of any challenges as well as any successes!

May I intern without seeking credit?

Yes! However, you must still communicate with the Internship Office. We are here to help prepare you for the experience and to be a resource in your search. A resume critique and brainstorming session are useful services available to you. You must receive approval prior to responding to postings or applying for internships.
