Internship Forms and Timeline

  • An internship is a one-semester employment commitment with one employer
  • Internships can be for-credit or non-credit. For-credit internships can either be part time (20 hours or less) or full time (more than 20 hours) as long as students register for them before the add-drop deadline. Non-credit internships can only be part-time (20 hours or less)
  • Please note: you have to be enrolled in full-time academic coursework by the add/drop date to maintain your F-1 status. You are required to register for at least one in-person course each semester if you would like to participate in for-credit internships and ensure that you meet the full time enrollment requirements
