Carroll’s internship program allows students to apply concepts learned in the classroom to real life work environments. In addition, students are able to explore diverse career paths, expand their skills and knowledge base, and develop greater interpersonal skills. Internships are available for credit and non-credit.
Credit internships are awarded one credit hour per every 45 hours of internship work. To qualify, students must have a grade point average of 2.0 or better. Credit internships require a faculty sponsor and must be coordinated with the Coordinator of Experiential Learning and Student Organizations.
- You must have completed or be exempt from READ-099 and/or READ-101, have a minimum of 12 credit hours and be currently enrolled as a Carroll student.
- You may only have a total of six internship credit hours within one degree program.
- Any internship beyond six credit hours will not receive academic credit.
- Internships for academic credit must be completed during the term in which you are enrolled.
- To start the internship process, schedule an interview with the Coordinator of Experiential Learning and Student Organizations.
- The Internship Course Agreement (ICA) and the Memorandum of Understanding must be completed at the beginning of the internship.
- You may not be an intern in your current position/job description.
- Internships can be paid and unpaid. In the case of paid internships, wage rates are discussed between the you and employer. The college does not intervene regarding pay rates.
