Intensive Internships

Intensive internships allow students to spend more time at the internship by working for two consecutive semesters instead of just one. This allows student to work on longer-term projects or to rotate through different areas with their employer. Intensive internships are usually coordinated between a student and their employer during the initial internship offer and typically take place during summer and fall or spring and summer semesters. By registering for an intensive internship with the Office of Professional Practice, students will be able to have their experience recorded on their academic transcript and maintain their full-time student status for insurance and financial aid obligations during the fall or spring semester that the student is working.
