To qualify for an internship for course credit, you must:

  • Be accepted in College of Business
  • Be in good standing at A&M-Commerce and in good standing in the College of Business
  • Have completed a minimum of 12 semester credit hours at A&M-Commerce
  • Be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours (excluding summer term)
  • Secure an internship with a minimum of 140 work hours during the fall/spring semesters or 96 work hours during the summer.
  • Complete all necessary steps and forms within stated deadlines.

Finding an Internship

Students may secure their own internships or the assistant director of Career Services can assist students in finding one:

  1. Schedule internship search consultation with Megan Nolan via Handshake.
  2. Upload your resume to be reviewed by Career Services staff from your Handshake profile.

Internship terms are spring, May mini, summer 1, August mini, fall, and winter mini by request. For mini semesters, internships should be a minimum of four weeks as 96 work hours must be completed.

Once Internship Starts

Once your internship is approved, you will know your agreed-upon start date, and you will report to your internship site supervisor at the appropriate time. If you are receiving course credit, you will also be enrolled in an internship course on D2L and will complete and upload required assignments in the learning management system, which will be graded by the assistant director. You will receive a grade of satisfactory or unsatisfactory in this internship–not a grade.

During the Internship:

  1. Reflection journals are due on average every three weeks for a total of five journals throughout the term.
  2. The intern is responsible for recording work through a timesheet. For fall/spring internships, 140 work hours are completed over a minimum of three months. For summer internships and mini terms, the intern must work at least 96 hours over a minimum of five weeks.
  3. Mid-term and final evaluations by the internship supervisor must reflect a rating that meets expectations. If expectations are not met at mid-term, improvements must be documented by the final evaluation.
