Internship Course Credit (iProgram)

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. 

 

MPAC students may enroll in ACC 6322 for Field Experience to be applied towards graduate graduation requirements. MBA students do not qualify to receive course credit. ​


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. 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. You must be actively employed with the internship to be eligible to receive Field Experience. We do not award credit for completed internship experience.

​​

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. ​

  1. ​Log on to www.uhd.edu/gatorhired​
