Academic Policy Details
Internships of varying design and length are available to students from many academic majors. Such internships provide a practical learning experience as a supplement to classroom instruction. The internship is also a way to test out a career choice or even to get a foot in the door for a potential job offer.
Internships provide the opportunity to relate work activity to educational objectives. Students interested in completing an internship must meet the following criteria: (1) be a junior or senior, (2) hold a minimum G.P.A. of 2.5, (3) choose an approved setting relating to the major, (4) obtain approval of the division chair prior to registering for the internship. Internships may be taken for 3,6,9,12 credit hours depending upon the division. Students interested in registering for internships need to plan early in order to secure an appropriate work situation. Students must register for internships during the regular registration dates.
These policies apply to the Semester Program/On Campus students only. Graduate College Students will need to consult the Graduate College Bulletin.
