An internship is a career-related experience where students take on responsive roles within companies or organizations to enhance their understanding beyond the classroom. An internship is usually a one-time experience that is directly supervised by a professional in the respective field. Students learn by completing established goals and learning objectives throughout the internship.
- Paid - Employer pays 100% of the student wages during an approved time-frame. We encourage this option as more student applications will typically result. Paying interns guarantees full compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act.
- Unpaid/Volunteer - Students gain valuable experience for their resume, build a network of work references, and can validate their chosen career path.
- College Credit (in combination with paid or unpaid) - Student must be pre-approved and complete a minimum 75 hours on-site per credit hour earned. A student must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA to qualify. Tuition will be charged per credit.
Time frames may vary i.e. part-time and full-time for a semester, two semesters, a summer, or possibly longer.
