The Marilyn Davies College of Business allows up to two undergraduate courses (6 semester credit hours) in Field Experience to be applied toward undergraduate graduation requirements. Each experience must be a different internship or if you are with the same company must include a different experience than what you previously completed.
These courses are graded on a pass/fail basis and do not apply toward the calculation of the grade point average. Field Experience credit may NOT be used to satisfy minor program requirements, except for Insurance & Risk Management. MBA students do not qualify to receive course credit. Students will be responsible for any fees associated with Field Experience Courses.
Students are required to complete a minimum of 120 work hours at the internship site in order to receive credit. Other aspects of course requirements will be provided below and/or in the course syllabus for your respective major.
Note: You may not perform an internship at a site in which any family member is the employer.
COVID-19 Field Experience Exception: You may perform an internship at your current place of employment, however, it must be with the commitment from you and your direct manager that the internship is cross-functional or rotational in nature for the purpose of upskilling or development.
