Earning Academic Internship Credit

FCBE students have the opportunity to earn academic credit for internships that are related to their majors. These internships are approved by departmental Faculty Internship Supervisors and once approved, student interns work with a faculty Internship Course Instructor within their major for their internship coursework. Internship courses are graded on a letter grade scale (A, B, C, D) and follow the same requirements as other academic courses for grading and drop deadlines. Registration is by permit only.

To apply for internship academic credit, please follow the steps below.

Academic Requirements for FCBE Academic Internships:

Eligibility requirements for internship course academic credit are as follows:

  • Business major
  • Junior or Senior classification with a minimum 2.75 GPA

  • Students must work 150 hours to receive credit

In addition to these requirements, Finance majors must have completed FIR 3410 with a minimum grade of a C.
