Professional Internship Course (IDS 3949)  0-1 credits
Guidelines for Students/Registration Process
This 0-1 credit course offers students the opportunity to gain “real-world” exposure and supervised experience related to their major, specific field of study or career interests. Students will integrate theories learned in the classroom with experiential activities acquired through direct involvement in on/off-campus internship opportunities. Students will develop marketable skills in preparation for future employment or graduate school studies. The Professional Internship course is offered on a semester basis, fall, spring, or summer (Term I). Students can participate multiple times with one employer or different employers.

  • Learn and understand skills and attributes that employers value.
  • Identify the integration of academic studies with practical application outside the classroom.
  • Reflect on current skill set and areas for future development.
  • Have tangible outcomes to discuss with future internship and full-time employers.
  • Network and secure future internship and full-time opportunities upon graduation.
The Professional Internship course is a partnership among the student, employer, and the Career Center.

  • This is an experiential learning course. It does not meet in the traditional classroom setting. Instead each student will engage in a pre-approved employer worksite while completing assignments through learning objectives and evaluations. This course will be fully on-line.
  • The work schedule is determined by the employing organization/company and student. There is a requirement of a minimum of 60 total hours completed during the academic semester. Students must be supervised at an approved job site. Transportation to the internship site is provided by student.
  • Students will not actively pursue other internship opportunities for the same term that would affect their agreement with their current internship employer.
  • Students are graded Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory. If students do not complete the hours and weeks of employment provided during the approval of the internship experience, they may receive an Unsatisfactory for the course.
  • There are three required evaluations during the course (Learning Objectives/Midterm Progress Report, Student Final Evaluation, and Employer Final Evaluation). These evaluations are completed electronically and must be submitted by the deadline dates listed in the syllabus or the student may receive an Unsatisfactory for the course. If students are unable to submit an assignment by the deadline date they must contact the course instructor one week prior to the deadline date to make alternative arrangements.
  • Students must have completed one semester at FAU as evidenced by having a FAU GPA on record in Banner.
  • International students (F-1 status) must have maintained valid F-1 status and full-time enrollment for at least two consecutive semesters prior to the Internship start date. To review the requirements for CPT (Curricular Practical Training) for F-1 students please view the following webpage: http://www.fau.edu/international/current/CPT.php.
  • International students must obtain from International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) an I-20 and meet all USCIS and/or ISSS requirements.
The Career Center strongly encourages students to begin their search for internships early. Internship Specialists are available to assist students in designing an internship search strategy, refining their resumes, and preparing for interviews. International students must register for a course either through the Professional Internship course, the Career Center’s Cooperative Education Program, or a departmental internship in order to comply with federal guidelines. All I-20 forms must be updated prior to beginning an internship assignment. Acceptance and placement into an internship assignment is not guaranteed. All students must be approved by the Career Center before being registered for the Professional Internship course.

Students are asked to evaluate their work experience and review their learning objectives. Employers are also asked to provide feedback on the student's performance. Students are graded satisfactory/unsatisfactory. All of the required evaluations (Learning Objectives/Midterm Progress Report, Student Final Evaluation, and Employer Final Evaluation) must be submitted by the deadline dates or the student may receive an Unsatisfactory for the course. Only students who register  for a Professional Internship course will have it notated on their transcript.

Cooperative Education Guidelines for Students - 
Application Process (1-4 credits)
The Cooperative Education Program is a unique educational program in which students integrate classroom study with periods of paid, supervised work experience related to their academic majors. At Florida Atlantic University, a Co-op assignment is a structured experiential learning opportunity in which students apply concepts studied in the classroom to "real world" work situations. Students must be regularly supervised by a professional in the field.

Co-op is offered on a semester basis, fall, spring, or summer (Term I), full-time, or part-time. A Co-op assignment can be multiple times with one employer or different employers.

  • To explore career interests and work environments
  • To enhance classroom learning through practical experience
  • To receive training and utilize technologies in the workplace
  • To clarify career objectives and execute a realistic job search strategy
  • To network and secure job opportunities upon graduation
  • To gain marketable experience
  • Full-time (Alternating Co-op): Students alternate semesters of academic study with semesters of full-time, paid Co-op assignments. Students work full-time for a semester and return to school the following semester to continue their course studies. Students may remain with the same employer during their next Co-op or accept employment with a new company. Full-time is defined as a minimum of 35 hours per week for 10 consecutive weeks during the summer and 13 consecutive weeks during the fall and spring.
  • Part-time (Parallel Co-op): Students work on a part-time basis while they are enrolled in full-time classes. Part-time is defined as a minimum of 15 hours per week for 10 consecutive weeks during the summer and 13 consecutive weeks during the fall and spring.
  • A fully enrolled degree-seeking student at FAU and in good standing (not on probation; suspension or dismissal).
  • Completed 30 credits of undergraduate coursework or 9 credits of graduate coursework in current program.
  • Full-time FAU enrollment in an undergraduate or graduate degree seeking program and demonstrated progression towards degree.
  • Transfer students must complete one semester at FAU.
  • FAU cumulative GPA of at least 2.7 undergraduate or 3.0 graduate.
  • International students (F-1 status) must have maintained valid F-1 status and full-time enrollment for at least two consecutive semesters prior to the Co-op start date. To review the requirements for CPT (Curricular Practical Training) for F-1 students please view the following webpage: http://www.fau.edu/international/current/CPT.php.
  • International students must obtain from International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) an I-20 and meet all USCIS and/or ISSS requirements.
  • Students must apply a semester prior to their participation (i.e. apply during the spring semester for a Co-op in the summer).
  • Students may not currently be on a GA, TA, or RA contract with their department.
The Career Center strongly encourages students to begin their search for positions early. Career Advisors are available through the same day career advising program as well as by appointment to assist students in designing a job search strategy, refining their resumes, and preparing for interviews. In order to receive elective credit, the academic department must give written approval; otherwise, Co-op credit is an additive credit. International students must register for a course either through the Co-op program, The Career Center's Professional Internship or  a departmental internship in order to comply with federal guidelines. All I-20 forms must be updated prior to beginning a Co-op assignment. Acceptance and placement into a Co-op assignment is not guaranteed. All employees must be approved by the Career Center before being accepted into the program.

Students are asked to evaluate their work experience and review their learning objectives. Employers are also asked to provide feedback on the student's performance. Students are graded satisfactory/unsatisfactory. All of the required evaluations (Learning Objectives/Midterm Progress Report, Student Final Evaluation, and Employer Final Evaluation) must be submitted by the deadline dates or the student may receive an Unsatisfactory for the course. Only students who register  for a Co-op course will have it notated on their transcript.
