Want to earn course credit for your internship experience? 

You’ve come to the right place and should consider applying for academic credit! 

Depending on your internship and career interests, the Management Department can offer you course credit in Human Resource Management (MGMT 389A), Management (MGMT 389C), Project Management (MGMT 389E), Sustainability (MGMT 389D), and Entrepreneurship/Small Business Management (MGMT 389K). Internships are not limited to Chico; as long as it’s approved, you may fulfill the internship anywhere.

To earn academic credit for an internship, you must complete the application and pre-enrollment process by the end of week 12 in the semester before your internship begins. To begin your pre-enrollment, simply complete the online application form and risk management paperwork.

Your application will be reviewed for confirmation of your academic qualifications, which include: 

  • junior standing
  • a 2.75 or higher cumulative GPA
  • completion of required prerequisites

In addition to student requirements, the internship itself must include:

  • 135 hours of developmental work responsibilities
  • a job description provided by the employer
  • employer’s approval.   

After being approved and enrolling in the MGMT 389 course of your choice, you will perform your work duties and complete the academic requirements for the internship simultaneously. Academic requirements include class time, a term paper, and a reflection paper. Further detail can be found in the syllabus here.
