  • Please check with your specific department to see how many hours are required to receive course credit for doing your internship. Some programs may not offer course credit for an internship, however the experience you gain will be worth your time even if you do not receive course credit.

Legitimate employers follow guidelines that allow you the time to make an informed decision. If they set unrealistic timelines that require immediate action or funds, please notify a CSUSB Counselor.
