Internship Roadmap


For-credit internships must meet the following criteria:

  1. The internship is not with a family business.
  2. The intern has been with the employer for less than three months OR has recently been promoted or assigned a new task/project that will occupy most of the intern's time (see point 3).
  3. The intern will complete a minimum of 80 hours of work for every hour of desired credit (i.e., 4 credits equals 320 hours of work).  Please note: credit may be received for multiple internships if each opportunity presents a new learning objective. Please inquire with the JCC to learn more.
  4. The internship adheres to NACE (National Association for Colleges and Employers) standards:
  • The experience must be an extension of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom.  It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.
  • The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
  • The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
  • There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student's academic coursework.
  • There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
  • There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.
  • There are resources, equipment, and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals.
