Internships are a great way to earn college credits, attain professional experience to include in your resume and help you prepare for a career after graduation.
A qualified internship is a structured, practical experience in which you apply all that you've learned throughout your coursework at Rio Salado. An internship should also further your knowledge and skills in an area that specifically relates to your current program of study and future career goals.
Internships can be paid or voluntary assignments. Once an internship is established, it can be arranged for one, two or three credit hours, depending on work hours. Students can use up to six internship credit hours toward approved degrees and certificates.
Students must be currently enrolled at Rio Salado with a freshman or sophomore status and have a minimum 2.0 GPA to be eligible for an internship. It is the student’s responsibility to secure an internship opportunity.
