Students receive two (2) academic credits for their participation in the internship course. Most interns work 15 hours a week in work-learning positions related to their academic majors and career goals, but there is no maximum number of house a student may work. Some employers may require more hours and students may accept this requirement if they wish to work at that particular site. The overwhelming majority of internships are volunteer positions. Occasionally, employers offer a small salary or stipend, but no student is ever promised a stipend or salary when they register for an internship.
