The College defines an internship as any short-term, supervised work experience specifically related to a student’s declared major, for which the student earns (3) academic credits. The internship should provide students with a meaningful experience directly related to their course of study. Students are guided through their internship experience by a credentialed faculty member who assists in developing measurable learning outcomes, and grades mid-term and end-of-term projects, and serves as the intern’s advocate.
Note: The College only supports internships that award college credit, and/or paid internships. Students pay the standard tuition rate for a (3) credit internship course.
To qualify for an internship, the student must be currently enrolled in a degree program, be in good academic standing (minimum 2.0 GPA), and have completed at least 24 credits.
International students in F1 visa status are eligible to participate in an internship if they meet the following requirements:

- The internship is an integral part of the student's degree program.
- Students must be enrolled in the internship class for the term they will be employed.
