Internships/Co-ops

An Internship is a structured & supervised experience with an organization or company, designed to enrich and complement students’ academic program. 

  • Although students are encouraged to complete a minimum of 30 credit hours before engaging in an internship, an increasing number of opportunities are including students with Freshman status. 

The Cooperative Education Program allows a student who has completed 45 semester hours (G.P.A.: 3.0 or better) to alternate a semester of paid employment with a company related to the student's academic major with a similar period of study until the senior year. 

  • The student must complete a minimum of two work periods.
