All students who wish to register for a Kogod internship for credit
must have completed:
12 credits in business
The first 300-level core business class in the area of the internship (i.e. MKTG-300 Principles of Marketing would be the prerequisite 300-level course for a marketing internship)
Students entering Kogod in Fall 2016 or later must complete KSB-211
(set by AU Academic Regulations)
The table below illustrates the earned credits associated with the required minimum interned hours. While the table includes the average weekly interned hours associated with earned credits, students, with the permission of their instructors, may vary their schedule hours as long as they meet the total minimum requirement by the end of the semester or term. Students who elect to work in excess of the minimum for fewer academic credit hours should consult their academic advisor.
Earned Credits/Minimum Hours Interned
Minimum total hours interned required by end of term
Average number of hours interned weekly over 14 weeks
For-credit internships must be in an office. No for-credit internships will be approved that are in a home office.
Internships will be validated as substantive (less than 15% administrative work) and relevant by your Faculty Advisor.
Obtain your Academic Advisor's signature verifying that you have your pre-requisites completed.
Set up a meeting with the Faculty Advisor and bring the completed pages 3 and 4 of this internship packet to this meeting. (During the meeting you will discuss your internship and the associated assignments.)
Bring your completed, signed paperwork to KSB 106 for the final registration.
Check the appropriate visa box and have your ISSS representative sign the form
before meeting with your Academic Advisor.
