Entrepreneurial Internship Sample Business Plan
- Internship courses are for credit and will receive a letter grade (not pass/fail).
- Internship courses require assignments to be submitted that will determine your grade for the course. The course syllabus will be available on I-Learn once you are registered, or can be obtained from your internship faculty coordinator.
- To receive credit for an internship students must complete the Internship Approval Process. This should be done before starting the internship if possible, or within the first three weeks of work.
- Students must complete an end-of-experience evaluation for the University. This is in addition to any evaluation or assignment given by your faculty internship coordinator.
Experiences not qualifying for Internship Credit:
- Door-to-door sales
- Call-center phone-based positions
- Telecommuting, work-from-home and internet research-based positions unless pre-approved by the Academic Discovery Center.
Length and Hour Requirements
- Internships must be a minimum of 7 weeks, 10 hours per week, to be considered for academic credit. However, each department has specific requirements for internship hours. Please check with your department internship coordinator for complete details.
- Students are encouraged to work full-time for the entire length of a semester if possible, to ensure they have the most valuable experience.
