Internships for Credit
The School of Business offers two courses for students to earn academic credit for an internship: BUS 300 (available to all business students), and ACCT 599/799 (for accounting majors and MAcc students completing an accounting-related internship). Internships are not a graduation requirement within the School of Business, so completing an internship for credit is not required. However, they can be a great option for students that need to earn credit for their internship experience.
Both BUS 300 and ACCT 599/799 are actual courses with assignments and a final letter grade, and tuition and fees are assessed. In addition, the classes do not have a rolling enrollment process. Application deadlines are firm, and due to the structure of course assignments, exceptions cannot be made.

BUS 300 Internship Application Form - Applications for summer 2019 are no longer being accepted. Enrollment for the class is closed. Applications for fall 2019 will be accepted starting August 1, 2019.
Business Career Services has a scholarship fund available to provide financial support to students who are completing an unpaid internship, and/or experience relocation or housing expenses as a result of their internship. Students may submit a brief application for consideration. Submissions are evaluated annually in mid-April. Questions can be directed to Jennifer Jordan at email@example.com.
